NHS doctors, nurses and other frontline staff have come forward to help reassure communities that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and have been independently tested to the highest standards.

NHS staff have recorded messages in some of the most commonly spoken languages – apart from English – in the capital to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine reach all Londoners.

If one of the below languages is spoken by your staff, please consider sharing the videos (which are available to download) to encourage uptake of the vaccine. For ease, you could consider downloading and sharing via Whatsapp Web, which is a free version of the app on your desktop.

They explain how the vaccine is given, and give clear evidence that the vaccines work and are safe. It is hoped that the videos will be shared among friends, families, faith and community groups via WhatsApp, text message and on social media. You can view the script in English and download the videos via the links below.

The languages the videos have been produced in are:

  • Arabic
  • Bengali
  • Gujarati
  • Igbo
  • Nepali
  • Polish
  • Punjabi
  • Romanian
  • Somali
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Turkish
  • Urdu
  • Yoruba

More videos in additional languages are in development by NHS England.

Sutton Councillors have also produced a video speaking to their communities. Please also consider sharing this with staff.
