Vaccine Information Fund
As Scotland moves through its vaccination programme, it is crucial that all of the people of Scotland have informed and equal access to information about the vaccine.Through the evidence developed as part of BEMIS Scotland & the Ethnic Minority National Resilience Network Health and Vaccination Survey, we know that not all individuals and communities have or are able to access information in the same way. As such, as part of the Scottish Government efforts to ensure equal access to information regarding the vaccines, BEMIS Scotland are running a Vaccine Information Fund programme to empower communities to have engagement sessions about the vaccine programme and develop information assets that can be used for different communities.
