Covid-19 Q&A session

This is an an online session to help the community to hear from NHS experts on the vaccine and local faith leaders on why they think communities should take up the vaccine when they are offered it.

Sadly, there is a lot of misinformation and 'fake news' around the vaccine, so this is an opportunity for people in communities across the Black Country and wider West Midlands to ask any questions they have in relation to the Covid-19 vaccination.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Mrs Madhu Patel, Vice Chair, Shree Ram Mandir - Walsall
  • Dr Masood Ahmed - Chief Medical Officer & CCIO at NHS Black Country & West Birmingham CCGs
  • Moulana Ibrahim Isakjee - Imaam in Walsall
  • Right Reverend Dr Michael Ipgrave - Bishop of Lichfield
  • Gurdip Singh from the Sikh community

Our aim is to bring people together from across the West Midlands to:

  1. Increase people’s knowledge of the different faith perspectives on vaccinations.
  2. Breakdown conspiracy theories and myths around the topic.
  3. Increase social cohesion by bringing people together.
  4. Explore how we can all work TOGETHER across communities and faith groups, to improve uptake of vaccinations.
