Now we are all seeing more people face-to-face it’s only natural we want to chat. Of course, one of the main topics of everyone’s conversation is still coronavirus and our experiences of and thoughts about the vaccine.
It may feel like just having a chinwag, but the conversations we have play a role in shaping how we view the world and how we think about important issues, like vaccination.
That’s why a new Greater Manchester wide campaign, VaccChat, is putting key information into the hands of those who, through the course of their day, speak to lots of people.
Handy cue cards are being given to frontline professionals like hairdressers, barbers and beauticians outlining the facts about the vaccine so these can be shared with members of the public, especially those aged 18-30.
With the Covid-19 vaccine now being offered to younger there are concerns that ‘vaccine hesitancy’ may be more prevalent due to the perception that the risk of serious illness from the virus is lower in younger people.
If you want to help get the word out download VaccChat resources, including posters, flyers and images for use on social media.
