At long last, we have a working COVID-19 vaccine that has been approved for use in the UK. While availability will be limited at first, communicating the importance and safety of vaccination is vital if we are to get as many people protected as possible, and hopefully start to put an end to this pandemic.
Unfortunately, we know that there is also a great deal of misinformation concerning the COIVD-19 vaccines and vaccination in general. Most people are not ‘anti-vaxxers’, but with the amount of misinformation propagated on social media and elsewhere, many people may become uncertain of the benefits and risks of vaccination. A lot of those people, when uncertain of the risks, will choose inaction because this is mistakenly perceived as the safer option.
With that in mind, here are some trustworthy sources of information about the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination in general that we recommend you check out, whether you need reassurance about safety, or are simply looking for more information.
