The Vaccine Run



We wanted to create images that would catch attention on social media- a little bit weird so people would feel inclined to interact with the images and learn more.

The Project:

My dog and I ran the shape of a vaccine. It was harder than we’d thought it would be.


Chart your own route.

Share it with your running group.

What worked?

It was unexpected!

Reflections from Olivia Bonardi

What were some of the responses to this work?

I spoke with people along my route and afterwards through social media- they seemed skeptical, a little tickled, and curious to learn what would compel a person to do such a foolish thing.

What would be your next steps, building on this idea, if you had a million dollars and all the time and skills in the world?

I would make this go viral, have everyone out there running/walking vaccines (double good because it spreads awareness and gets people out exercising).
