The Government has published British Sign Language (BSL) videos related to the vaccination programme. The leaflets on which these videos are based on are also available to download and paper copies are also available to order.


Vaccine information in community languages

NHS doctors, nurses and other frontline staff have come forward to help reassure communities that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective and have been independently tested to the highest standards. Staff have recorded messages in some of the most commonly spoken languages – apart from English – to help ensure messages about the importance of getting a COVID-19 vaccine reach all communities. You can view the messages on the NHS England website.

The languages the videos have been produced in are:

  • Arabic
  • Bengali
  • Gujarati
  • Igbo
  • Nepali
  • Polish
  • Punjabi
  • Romanian
  • Somali
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Turkish
  • Urdu
  • Yoruba

More videos in additional languages are in development.

New leaflets in Hindi and Nepali have been published with vital information about COVID-19. The format and contents of the leaflets have been co-produced by community members, researchers and health professionals.

They cover topics such as:

  • What is COVID-19?
