Vaccine messages - subtitled & signed video now available

Posted on: 28 April 2021

Six UK deafness charities have come together to produce a new video that hopes to help save lives by encouraging COVID-19 vaccine take-up amongst ethnic minorities from the deaf community.

The deafness charities involved are; Cambridgeshire Deaf Association, deafPlus, Manchester Deaf Centre, Royal Association of Deaf People, and Sign Health.

The video features a range of people from various ethnic backgrounds within the deaf community, including some prominent people from the world of entertainment, such as actors, TV producers, and comedians, who have all given their time to get this vital message across.

Alan Murray MBE is the Honourary Treasurer and Trustee of deafPlus, one of the six charities involved, and he said: "deafPLUS is delighted that this group of Deaf-led charities has united behind the simple message that the COVID vaccine programme is vital to protecting lives and providing a way out of this health crisis."

Please share the video with communities that will benefit from watching.
