COVID-19: Vaccine information for the BAME Community
Lanarkshire Carers are delighted to have worked in partnership with NHS Lanarkshire, community leaders and members of the local BAME community to support a better understanding of the COVID-19 vaccination and to address concerns about the misinformation targeted at BAME communities via social media.
An information and awareness-raising campaign via social media; specifically WhatsApp, was planned and five videos were produced in English and Urdu / Punjabi to answer questions about the vaccine, to look at the barriers in accessing vaccination and support the uptake of the vaccination within the BAME community. Community representatives such as a teacher, community pharmacist, A&E consultant, consultant psychiatrist and our BAME Carers Services & Equality Coordinator participated in this project. The videos were launched via WhatsApp and are available on the NHS Lanarkshire YouTube channel.

Lanarkshire Carers wishes to thank everyone who filmed, edited and shared the marvellous videos.
