Vaccine information in community languages

NHS doctors, nurses and other frontline staff have come forward to help reassure communities that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and have been independently tested to the highest standards.

NHS staff have recorded messages in some of the most commonly spoken languages – apart from English – in the capital to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine reach all Londoners.

They explain how the vaccine is given, and give clear evidence that the vaccines work and are safe. It is hoped that the videos will be shared among friends, families, faith and community groups via WhatsApp, text message and on social media.

Printable leaflets on COVID-19 vaccine information in community languages

Public Health England has shared printable leaflets on COVID-19 vaccine information in various community languages. The leaflets include a guide for older adults, what to expect after your COVID-19 vaccination, why you are being asked to wait, information for women of childbearing age, currently pregnant or breastfeeding and a guide for healthcare workers. Find out more.

 


Social prescribing resource pack – handling vaccine hesitancy 

The purpose of the London social prescribing resource pack is to ensure social prescribers have all the resources and information needed to hand, acting as a ‘go to guide’ to support them when talking with patients who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination but are showing signs of hesitancy. This pack can also be used by other healthcare professionals when having conversations with patients and supporting them to make decisions about the COVID vaccine too.
