COVID vaccination videos in different languages
Vaccines are the way out of this pandemic and this is the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever undertaken.
An important COVID message about vaccination has been filmed in multiple languages to encourage vaccine confidence within ethnic minority groups after GPs raised concerns over a low uptake of coronavirus vaccination among patients from these backgrounds, due to misinformation leaving some patients reluctant to come forward.
Encourage confidence and dispel myths
NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) across the Humber, Coast and Vale area, have come together to coordinate video messages from GPs, to provide confidence in the vaccine and to dispel any vaccine myths.
Across our region we have a diverse range of wonderful languages spoken and want to reach out to our culturally diverse communities to ensure everyone has the opportunity to hear and understand factual information about the vaccine from their local doctors and thus encourage vaccine confidence.
More languages to be added
The aim is to continue to reproduce the vaccine confidence message in as many languages as possible to help people in our communities understand the importance of the COVID vaccine, and what it can do to help protect us and our loved ones.

The COVID-19 vaccine information videos in different languages can be viewed on the HCV YouTube channel here. The English version is below from Dr Faisel Baig, from North Lincolnshire CCG
What to do after vaccination
After people have had their vaccine they must continue to follow the government guidelines and national restrictions and measures in place.
Please still need to keep their distance from others, wash their hands and wear a face covering.
Avoiding COVID vaccine fraud and scams
To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals please remember :
- The vaccine is only available on the NHS for free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112.
- The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
- If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.
