National Sector (online) consultation - COVID-19 vaccine communications among multicultural communities
Concerns about the spread of COVID-19 remain, and although vaccines are widely available, there remains some hesitancy in vaccine uptake.
MYAN is hosting an online sector consultation to identify the work done so far to encourage vaccine uptake. The consultation will focus on how the sectors and their members have worked towards stopping the spread of COVID-19 and encouraged vaccination within multicultural communities across Australia. Particularly the various strategies and plans used.
The outcome of the consultation will:
1. Contribute to an improved evidence base detailing the experiences/challenges of vaccine intake among members of the multicultural communities .
2. What strategies and plans have been helped tackle the barriers and challenges.
3. Locate the gaps and inform a report that highlights the data and outlines good practice, gaps in the sector’s capabilities and recommendations for government and service providers.
