In partnership and collaboration with Foundation House, the Centre for Migrant and Refugee Health delivered a COVID-19 information session for the Syriac Senior Parenting group age 50years and above.
The information delivery on the COVID-19 pandemic now is vital for multicultural communities from migrant and refugee backgrounds. There is a lot of misinformation and disinformation about COVID-19, which has put the community under intense stress and shock.
The news about the AstraZeneca vaccine blood clot affects many migrant and refugee backgrounds to participate in the vaccine inoculation. Communicating risk and uncertainty about the vaccine is crucial for people to uptake the COVID-19 vaccine.
The delivery of the COVID-19 session was possible with the help of the Syrian Arabic interpreter, who interprets much of the messages.
