Vaccines are vital campaign


As health professionals you’ll already be acutely aware that the number of parents bringing their children for vaccinations have decreased and that this is a massive concern for global and local population health.

We know you already doing amazing work to make having vaccines safe and to reassure people who need to be vaccinated that they should continue to do so.

Over the next few weeks’ we are supporting the Meningitis Research Foundation ‘Vaccines are Vital’ campaign to highlight the value of vaccines. We will also be sharing the NHS ‘Vaccines Work’ messaging across our media channels. We need your help to spread the word. We need you to encourage the people you interact with, the networks you are part of and the parents who look to you for advice and guidance to get vaccinated. Please support these campaigns across all of your channels. If you want materials in any other format or find that we are missing something that would be useful for you please let us know.

As we move forward, we will be building on these national campaigns with local work to engage with community groups, members of the public and our partner organisations to raise the profile of immunisations and invite our communities to lead the way in being advocates as well as providing insights into any barriers that may stop them from accessing vaccines. We will be in touch with you shortly to discuss these plans. If you wish to be actively involved or support this work, please email kesti.gossling@nhs.net.
