In an open letter to the Black African Caribbean and Black African community, the Caribbean and African Health Network (CAHN) pledge to be available for open and honest discussions about COVID-19 vaccination. This is to help and support the community that has been the target of disinformation about COVID-19 and vaccination.
Whilst vaccination take-up is increasing in the Black community, it is at a slower rate than for other populations. Leaving more of the Black community at risk of catching COVID-19 and becoming seriously ill.
Throughout the pandemic, CAHN has been undertaking works and projects to promote health equity.
- Ensuring people have access to services, trusted COVID-19 and vaccination information and the opportunity to engage with health professionals.
- Helping people to make informed health choices.
- CAHN continues to offer a vaccination helpline, answering people’s questions about vaccination to help them to feel more empowered and confident in their decision.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to everyone over the age of 12 living in the UK, free of charge and irrespective of a person’s immigration status.
