Advil Teams Up with Canadian Performers to Launch #Aftermyshot Sessions

New campaign celebrates getting back on stage again after the COVID-19 vaccine

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 10, 2021 /CNW/ – #AfterMyShot Sessions spotlights the reunion between performers and their fans after receiving their COVID-19 vaccination.

The artists reflect on life away from the stage, their personal COVID-19 vaccine experience, and open up about how they plan to embrace what the future holds.
