Collaboration for Change Report: Enhancing vaccine confidence across ethnic minority communities

Collaboration for Change have launched a new report on enhancing vaccine confidence across ethnic minority communities.

The Collaboration for Change represents two UK universities, nine community organisations and two small and medium size enterprises, who, in a collective effort, have conducted research on how to improve vaccine uptake among ethnic minority groups.

Uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine varies widely across communities, and the collaboration have been working to help identify the reasons behind these variations, with the aim to ultimately increase vaccine uptake. The methodology included two rapid literature reviews followed by a series of decision-making frameworks to bring in the ‘true to life’ perspectives from community organisations.

The research involved various partners, including FaithAction member South Asian Health Action.

A summary report is now available which highlights the critical factors that impact vaccine uptake, and provides recommendations on how to increase uptake across ethnic minority groups.
