A short film to allay anxieties and support people with learning disabilities to have the Covid-19 vaccination has been developed following feedback from the learning disability community.
The film features ‘Michelle’ and her carer ‘Holly’ who were filmed at Mid Devon Healthcare Primary Care Network’s vaccination site at Lords Meadow Leisure Centre in Crediton.
NHS Devon CCG sought views through focus groups to identify what additional needs may be required to support uptake of the COVID vaccine.
The feedback received included providing accessible information about what to expect at the vaccination appointment.
This has been a joint project between NHS Devon CCG, NHS England and The Turning Tides Project.
