A webinar for healthcare workers: COVID-19 vaccines & communicating with younger adults



The British Society for Immunology is pleased to hold “A webinar for healthcare workers: COVID-19 vaccines & communicating with younger adults” on Monday 21 June 2021 from 12:00-13:00 BST.

Healthcare workers remain the most trusted voice when it comes to providing advice, answering questions, and addressing concerns about vaccines. This educational and interactive webinar aims to increase healthcare workers’ confidence in talking to younger adults about COVID-19 vaccines. We know that younger people have specific questions regarding COVID-19 vaccines and there are many different reasons why they may not feel confident in receiving the vaccine. By supporting healthcare professionals to communicate effectively with this audience, we hope to continue our mission to provide evidence-based information on COVID-19 vaccines to those who need or want it.

This webinar is for all healthcare workers who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 vaccines and build their skills in communicating with and tackling concerns that younger people may have. This webinar may also be of interest to volunteer vaccinators or healthcare staff who often interact with patients who are going to get vaccinated, such as GP receptionists and pharmacists.

Our speakers will introduce their experiences of engaging with younger adults about vaccines and how they answer some of the common questions that come up, followed by a Q&A discussion. Most of the session will be dedicated to answering your questions on how to listen to and address common concerns and have constructive conversations about vaccination.
