In our next COVID-19 Q&A, we're creating a safe, moderated community forum for young people to engage in a meaningful discussion about COVID-19 vaccines, who is being left behind, and how we can have a more inclusive COVID-19 recovery.

Young people have a right to be informed during a time of apprehension and uncertainty. The rollout, along with media releases and conflicting medical advice has all contributed to young people left feeling confused and unsure about the vaccine.

For more resources, please visit our COVID-19 Vaccines and Young People information hub here.
