Vaccine Hesitancy Black & Ethnic Minority Assets
The NHS wants to ensure everyone gets a vaccine whatever their concerns are. We are aware that some ethnic minority communities are being targeted with anti-vaccination messages online which is causing them concerns around the vaccine.
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, halal and effective, and the more people that have the vaccine, the sooner we can all go back to our normal lives
Those in our ethnic minority communities are at a greater risk of severe illness from COVID-19 so we urge you to get your vaccine when you are contacted by the NHS
The #COVIDVaccine has undergone months of rigorous testing & strict approval processes to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Taking up your vaccination invite will help protect yourself, your families and your communities.

Ethnic minority communities continue to be disproportionately impacted by COVID19, so it is important that these communities get necessary protection. Getting the #COVIDVaccine as soon as you can will help protect yourself, your families and your communities.
The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important not to contact the NHS for it before then. http://nhs.uk/CovidVaccine
