SCC’s Public Health has recently launched our Vaccine Buddy Programme in partnership with Spark Somerset, where we have trained a team of volunteer Vaccination Buddies who can offer 1-2-1 telephone support to people who are worried or unsure about having the vaccine. The Buddies come from all walks of life and have the right skills to support people to make informed decisions about having the Covid-19 vaccination. Individuals can be referred (or self-refer) to the scheme and a fully trained Vaccination Buddy will then contact them by phone to discuss their concerns and offer information and reassurance.

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Helen Fielden at Spark Somerset: Helen.Fielden@sparksomerset.org.uk
