Talking about immunisation - A guide for healthcare workers

Communicating with your community about childhood immunisations

UNICEF South Africa/2023/video


This plain language guide is designed to help nurses, health promoters, community health care workers and social mobilisers to communicate with communities about childhood immunisations. As healthcare workers, you play a critical role in promoting immunisation. Parents and caregivers trust you to give them accurate information about health, especially children’s health and even more so during a disease outbreak. This guide aims to support you to address vaccine hesitancy, and to keep improving your vaccine knowledge through platforms that are regularly updated – and so help increase trust in vaccines and vaccinators.

The Guide is designed for easy dissemination online and through social media, and is available in:

  • English
  • Afrikaans
  • Sesotho
  • isiXhosa
  • isiZulu
