COVID-19 vaccine information in your language

The Australian Government has translated information about COVID-19 vaccines into multiple languages.

Translated vaccine rollout videos

The Department of Health has partnered with SBS to develop vaccine explainer videos in multiple languages other than English, including Auslan.

The Department of Health has developed a COVID-19 vaccines multicultural audiences stakeholder pack (March edition). This pack contains in-language communication resources and key messages about the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, vaccine eligibility and vaccine safety. Click on the links in the stakeholder pack to access translated COVID-19 vaccines information. Resources include audio files, videos and social media content. We encourage you to disseminate these in-language resources and key messages through your networks.

Translated COVID-19 information

Queensland Health has Queensland-specific COVID-19 information in many languages. The Australian Government Department of Health has COVID-19 information available in more than 60 languages.

The Refugee Health Network Queensland has collated a range of translated, easy-read and pictorial resources from multiple sources, including 6 language adaptations of our Telehealth video that explains how to prepare for a telehealth appointment.

New resources will be added as they are developed. The most accurate and credible information about COVID-19 in our region is from the State and Federal Departments of Health. Please keep in mind that some resources developed by other states have state-specific information.

When booking your appointment please tell the health service if you need an interpreter and what language you speak. Interpreters are available anytime, day or night, during the week or weekend. You can contact the interpreter service directly by calling 13 14 50.
