On Wednesday evening this week, the Young Adult COVID Community Champions hosted a COVID vaccine Q&A session with guest speaker Dr Mohan Sekeram – a local GP who has supported the COVID vaccine rollout in Merton.
It was an interesting evening, and the session saw the highest number of attendees we’ve had for an event like this, with 26 locals registered onto the event.
Attendees were keen to find out about vaccine safety, when they might have their jab, and what they can do to tackle hesitancy in their peer group.
Full notes on the session will be available on our website.
