We can do it! Helping Tasmania deal with vaccine hesitancy

How community sector workers and allied health professionals can help.

There are many conversations happening in the Tasmanian community about COVID-19 vaccinations, and some folk are feeling very worried.

Community sector workers and allied health professionals can play an important role in addressing concerns about vaccination.

This webinar will:

  • Explore the difference between vaccine hesitancy and anti-vax sentiment
  • Discuss the types of conversations that can be helpful (and unhelpful) when people express vaccine hesitancy
  • Provide answers to the most common questions being asked by Tasmanians calling the Public Health Hotline
  • Guide you to helpful, community-friendly resources

The conversation is a live Q & A with Infectious Diseases Physician Dr Katie Flanagan, and Public Health Physician Dr Shannon Melody.   You can ask them any question COVID-or Vaccine-related and get an immediate answer.

This webinar is of interest to workers in the community sector, the allied health sector and anyone in a position of community leadership.
