PR Video for Rubella Prevention “Miss Campus Talks about the Ideal of Vaccinated Boys”    

Do you know how dangerous rubella can be?  Rubella is highly contagious, and if a woman becomes infected at the early stage of pregnancy, there is a risk of causing a serious physical disorder for her baby.  To protect pregnant women from infection, men should also get vaccinated.  As part of the measures to eradicate rubella, Kanagawa Prefectural Government made a promotion video “Miss Campus Talks about the Ideal of Vaccinated Boys” in collaboration with Campus Lab*.

Campus Lab is a project team formed by winners of university beauty pageant for solution of social issues.  The members are working on planning and practice of various projects in cooperation with companies and local governments.
