A round-up of DOTW COVID-19 vaccine resources
Published 23rd December 2021
The Doctors of the World vaccine project is approaching its first anniversary, so we wanted to recap on some of the resources we have available for professionals and individuals needing support and information.
Registering with a GP and booking a vaccination
Earlier in the summer, we published an animation on how to register with a GP and book vaccine appointments. This animation is now available in 23 languages.
We have complemented this with an A3 poster and A5 leaflet to help inform people about migrants’ entitlement to register with a GP and book a vaccine.
These resources are aimed at supporting outreach activities and communicating migrant rights with local communities.
Translated Health Information Hub
This year we also launched our Translated Health Information Hub. This hub allows you to find and download the translated health information resources on a range of topics in over 60 languages.
You can filter our resources by language, topic, or type and we have also added the option of downloading the videos and animations so they can be shared offline.
Included within the Translated Health Information Hub is translated COVID-19 guidance. This is to ensure that language is not a barrier to accessing COVID-19 vaccines.
Vaccine Confidence Toolkit
We have produced a COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence Toolkit to support communities and voluntary organisations delivering their own vaccine confidence events.
This toolkit includes a set of slides, speaker notes, infographics, guidance on how to deliver an information event. As well as video and text FAQs that will enable organisations to empower their community to make an informed decision about the COVID-19 vaccine.
External resources added to our Translated Health Information Hub
Amongst the external resources we have added to our Translated Health Information Hub is the letter on entitlement to NHS services for migrant patients from NHS England, as well as the booster leaflets available in 25 languages.
