KDF has organised a Vaccine Literacy and community engagement event in Walsall

Walsall: Kashmir Development Foundation in collaboration with the NHS is encouraging people to book their COVID-19 vaccinations as soon as possible before 30 June 2023. After that the vaccine will only be available for people who are at high risk of severe COVID-19, and for most people they will generally only be available seasonally.

KDF has organised a Vaccine Literacy and community engagement event in Walsall at Jamia Masjid Ghausia. Saidzada Noor Hussain, Chairman, KDF provided essential information about COVID-19 and other Vaccines and how they work to the members of British Kashmiri, South Asian and other members of the communities. Getting vaccinated can help to stop the spread of an infection. If you have a young child and don’t know if they are up to date with their routine vaccinations, you can check their Personal Health Record (which is also known as the red book). If they have missed a vaccination, contact their GP practice to book an appointment or call 111 and visit to book your vaccination appointment.

KDF volunteers distributed over 500 information leaflets in Pahari, Urdu and English language. They also signposted community members to information and help available from the NHS. Multilingual information leaflets and postcards containing information about COVID-19 and MMR vaccines were placed in the local community businesses for public information and awareness. On this occasion, Saidzada Noor Hussain, Councillor Khizer Hussain Deputy Leader Labour group Walsall, Barrister Nazir Ahmed, Raja Fazal Rehman, Javed Iqbal secretary Gosia Mosque, Mohamnad Altaf Rehmani, Religious Scholar Mufti Haroon ur Rasheed, Allama Abass, Khateeb Basharat tresurer Ghousia Mosque and others were also present there.
