Irish in Britain's free vaccine campaign workshop

Back to all news

We are delighted to announce that we will be holding an online Vaccine Le Chéile Workshop.

This workshop is part of the Covid-19 vaccine promotional campaign launched by Irish in Britain this week.

The free online workshop will be held via Zoom on Thursday 13 January from 3-4pm.

You can register for this free event HERE.

The hour-long workshop will have a number of exciting panellists including Brian McKenna, (Research Pharmacist with OpenSAFELY, The DataLab, University of Oxford), Noelette Hanley (Chief Executive Officer, Luton Irish Forum) and Amy Bird (BAME COVID-19 & Health Community Support Worker at Irish Community Care).

The event will include a number of topics that will help to empower attendees to support their community members who have been unable or hesitant to receive their Covid vaccination to date.

The workshop will start with an introduction to the Vaccine Le Chéile campaign and a run through of the resources by the campaign lead, Ellen Gavin.

Brian McKenna, Research pharmacist with OpenSAFELY will discuss the findings regarding the Covid vaccinations and discuss factors that may contribute to the statistics regarding the vaccine uptake of the Irish population in Britain.

Noelette Hanley, CEO at Luton Irish Forum will discuss their organisations experience throughout Covid-19 with a particular focus on supporting their service users to get the Covid-19 vaccine. Furthermore, Noelette will speak about her own experiences of barriers and vaccine myths that have faced her service users during the vaccination process.

Amy Bird, BAME COVID-19 & Health Community Support Worker at Irish Community Care) will discuss her work and experience as a support worker throughout the pandemic and will outline ways to support and empower the community to receive the vaccination.

There will be a Q&A session towards the end of the workshop where questions can be put forward to our panellist members. These questions can be sent in during the registration process.
