Vaccine Hesitancy

Publication date: February 2021

Surveys have shown stark differences by ethnic group in attitudes to COVID vaccines, and a quarter of younger women fear it would affect fertility. The BMA has published guidance and resources on how to communicate with different groups about the vaccine.

CCGs across the Humber, Coast and Vale area, have come together to coordinate video messages from local GPs, and are working to promote them to enhance confidence in the vaccine and to dispel any vaccine myths. These videos are currently available in English, Polish, Urdu, Hindi, Punjabi and Gujarati. The playlist can be found on the Humber, Coast and Vale YouTube channel here.

The British Fertility Society and Association of Reproductive and Clinical Scientists has also published some COVID-19 Vaccines FAQs to help address some of the vaccine hesitancy relating to fertility.

Read the BMA’s guidance on the COVID-19 vaccination programme which includes information about what is expected of practices and the support available to enable practices to prioritise vaccine delivery.
