VacciNation: Exploring vaccine confidence with people from African, Bangladeshi, Caribbean and Pakistani backgrounds living in England.
In this report, Healthwatch shares the views and experiences from 15,000 people across England about the Covid-19 vaccine and the roll out.
The report, ‘Health Inequalities, the Covid Vaccination & Community-Centred Approaches’, unpacks some of the most pervasive issues leading to low vaccine take-up in certain groups across the UK and, importantly, highlights ways to overcome the most prevalent barriers to health equality.
The Coalition for Personalised Care (C4PC) has released a report identifying key issues in tackling COVID vaccine hesitancy and reluctance. It is hoped that the insight gathered will improve understanding within the NHS, Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government of how best to influence vaccine take-up.
Amongst growing concern that health inequalities in the U.K. are adversely affecting the roll-out of the national Covid vaccination programme, C4PC is drawing together a broad range of partner organisations to provide valuable insight from a range of perspectives which could help to tackle the issue. We'll be sharing the findings immediately after the event.
