WECHU Train-the-Trainer COVID-19 Vaccine Education Session

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU), in partnership with the Multicultural Council (MCC) and the Windsor Essex Local Immigration Partnership (WE LIP) as part of the High Priority Community funding organized an educational opportunity on June 15, 2021 to learn about the COVID-19 vaccines. Service providers are in a unique position to have individual conversations to help clients navigate through complex systems.

The session covered topics including common vaccine questions and concerns, techniques for supporting clients who are experiencing vaccine hesitancy, and the process for registering for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment. The session was recorded and is available for other service providers to access.

Along with the session, a vaccine education portal was developed to provide frontline workers, social service providers and community leaders with further resources, information, and downloadable handouts to help them support their communities and/or service population in navigating information related to COVID-19 vaccination.
