The COVID-19 vaccine rollout will start in Australia next week. Whilst many people will be happy with this development, some people will be feeling anxious about getting the vaccine. Needle phobias are common, and are estimated to affect around 10% of the population. To support people with needle phobia, and the health professionals treating them, we have developed some information sheets explaining needle phobia and how to manage it.
Some people may also feel anxious about the COVID-19 vaccine due to more general concerns about vaccines. It is important to base health decisions on credible information. There are many sources of information about vaccines and it can be hard to make sense of conflicting information. To assist with this, we have created an information sheet with some tips to help evaluate the credibility of different sources of health information.
