Translated resources are available in 36 different languages to help prevent outbreaks of COVID-19 in non-English speaking populations and workforces in Ireland
The HSE has 36 multi-lingual video messages on the COVID 19 vaccine and ways to avoid the spread of COVID -19. These translated resources developed by Translate Ireland with the support of the National Social Inclusion Office and National Immunisation Office are available from the HSE in various languages. The videos are designed to reach those who may have missed mainstream information campaigns or who do not consume local media.
Multi-lingual resources are an essential part of engaging with migrant individuals and communities regarding the COVID 19 vaccine.
Further videos to support workplaces with non-English speaking employees were developed by South East Community Care as part of an interagency group including An Garda Siochana, the Health and Safety Authority, Meat Industry Ireland (MII), Dept. of Social Protection, Citizens Information Board and Local Authorities.
