It is hoped that the online question and answer session will help provide reassurance on the coronavirus vaccine to concerned people from the region’s black, Asian, and minority ethnic communities.
The Opening Doors conversation will allow those with concerns about the coronavirus vaccine to put their questions directly to local health and care experts.
National research suggests there is a higher degree of vaccine hesitancy in people from a black, Asian, or minority ethnic background.
Among the speakers who will be taking part in the online session are Gill May, Director of Nursing and Quality for the CCG, Dr. Nima Satish, a GP based at Westrop Medical Practice in Swindon, and Steve Maddern, Director of Public Health at Swindon Borough Council.
The Opening Doors online question and answer session is open to people of all ages and backgrounds.
Any person wishing to join the event, which will take place on the video-calling platform Zoom, should send an email with their name to email@example.com.
