Young people in Calderdale tackle Covid worries head on
Young people from Calderdale Young Commissioners, Tough Times Reference Group and SEND Reference Group have helped create Covid vaccination ‘worry cards.’
This resource has been produced to help decrease stress levels and any worries or questions that young people might have.
These top worries have been selected as the most frequent worries that young people said they are facing currently.
A suggestion was made by the young people to not only create a leaflet for young people, but to also to have a chatline so young people and their families could either text or call a professional to discuss any worries they may have about the vaccination.
A suggestion was made to use ChatHealth for this, which was approved.
The School Nursing Team at ChatHealth have been inundated with queries from parents and young people, and hopefully the support they have been able to offer will mean that young people are making a truly informed decision about vaccination.
