This event will help equip you to understand and respond to the concerns and questions that people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities have about the COVID-19 vaccines to help them make informed decisions.
People from CALD backgrounds face many barriers to equitable access to health care and information. Health professionals, settlement workers and other workers supporting people of CALD backgrounds play an important role in ensuring clients have access to accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccines.
You are invited to an online education event to hear commonly asked questions from CALD communities (and how to respond to them) and cultural considerations around the COVID-19 vaccines. A panel of health and community representatives with experience in working with CALD and refugee background communities will share their insights and knowledge.
Panel members: Evelyn Pe, Refugee Health Consultant (G11), Intesar Abas Shami, President of the Afar Community in Queensland and MyQ Council Youth Leader, Dr. Paul Griffin, Infectious Disease Specialist, Dr. Margaret Kay, GP and Clinical Lead in Multicultural Health, Anna Strikis, Refugee Health Nurse.
