Covid-19 vaccination

Covid-19 vaccine peer support and supportive conversations

As the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out gains pace we want to continue to support people who have questions or just want a chance to talk about the vaccine in more detail. More than 100 people across Newham are now trained as Vaccine Peer Supporters.

Have a conversation with a Vaccine Peer Supporter

Vaccine Peer Supporters are volunteers from our community who will listen to your questions, concerns and worries. They answer basic questions about the vaccine and find out more information if useful.

Peer supporters speak: Arabic, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Igbo, Punjabi, Spanish, Sylheti, Twi, Urdu, Yoruba

Vaccine Peer Supporters have all received training and are able to support others in their community. Email [email protected] or ring 02033732777.
