The Turnstone: talking about vaccines #9
The importance of our health professionals
Welcome to The Turnstone: talking about vaccines. Here, I share resources to help you have kind and non-judgemental conversations with people who are uncertain about, or opposed to, vaccination. I send out these resources every Wednesday - if you’d like them emailed to you directly, you can sign up to my mailing list.
This week, I'm sharing resources which talk about the role and perspective of health professionals on Covid-19 vaccination.
