Creativity in Promoting Covid-19 Vaccination Uptake in Sandwell.

Creativity in Promoting Covid-19 Vaccination Uptake in Sandwell.

Sandwell has certainly got talent in promoting the message about Covid-19 vaccination.

A number of locally-based organisations have already gained funding to let their communities and the wider population know the facts about vaccination.

Methods of communicating include phone calls, leaflet drops, Facebook Live (such as virtual coffee mornings, community TV and radio), music sessions via YouTube and competitions for children to raise awareness.

Information is being translated into a wide range of community languages including Polish, Urdu, Somali, Mirpuri, as well as one-to-one support for the Deaf Community with British Sign Language.

The community is reaching out to everyone including rough sleepers, Roma people, asylum seekers, parents of children with additional needs and older adults, amongst others. Mosques, churches and other faith groups are promoting the message, too, as well as lots of community groups throughout the Borough.

If you want to know how to get involved and have a good idea to get the vaccine message across then details are on the SCVO website at: SCVO | Sandwell Council of Voluntary Organisations
