Vaccine information in community languages

NHS doctors, nurses and other frontline staff have come forward to help reassure communities that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and have been independently tested to the highest standards.

Clinicians have recorded messages in some of the most commonly spoken languages – apart from English – in the capital to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine reach all Londoners.

They explain how the vaccine is given, and give clear evidence that the vaccines work and are safe. It is hoped that the videos will be shared among friends, families, faith and community groups via WhatsApp, text message and on social media. You can view the script in English and download the videos via the links below.

The languages the videos have been produced in are:

  • Arabic
  • Bengali
  • Gujarati
  • Polish
  • Punjabi
  • Romanian
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Turkish
  • Urdu
  • Yoruba
