Public screening of COVID-19 vaccine promotion videos: engaging with Chinese communities

What’s on offer?

These events, based on research undertaken in Leicester and Manchester by Dr Qian (Sarah) Gong (University of Leicester), will highlight the barriers and facilitators of COVID vaccine uptake among the UK Chinese communities.  Following an introductory talk by Dr Gong and screening of three COVID-19 vaccine promotion videos that address some of the barrier/facilitator issues there will be a Q&A session where attendees will be encouraged to take part in discussions and provide feedback.  The events, which are being held in both Leicester and Manchester, will run a parallel Zoom session to enable remote access. 

What’s it about?

The aim of these sessions is to discuss COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and the barriers and facilitators of COVID vaccine uptake.  Three videos have been produced which address some of the barrier/facilitator issues, and include 1) an interview with a doctor about COVID-19 vaccines, 2) a quick-fact animation about the vaccines (types, possible side effects, how to access and misinformation) and 3) stories of vaccination of three members of the Chinese community.  Following screening attendees will be encouraged to give feedback on the videos.

The events will help improve the attendees’ knowledge about the COVID-19 vaccines and help them make informed health decisions about vaccine uptake.

Who’s leading the event?

The event will be led by Dr Qian (Sarah) Gong, Associate Professor in Media and Communication at the University of Leicester
