Supporting COVID-19 Vaccine uptake during Ramadan Posted on 13 Apr 2021

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan is an important time for practising Muslims that involves a month of fasting, worship and community celebration. It is due to begin on 12 April 2021 (subject to moon sightings) bringing with it a change to normal daily life for many of our Muslim communities and NHS workforce.

To help build confidence, reduce any barriers to access and support the uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine amongst Muslim communities during the month of Ramadan, it is vital that system partners consider how they will reach out and engage with communities during this time.
