HCCS wins Covid-19 grant to support community vaccines


Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, HCCS has been supporting our community. Alongside this, we have been working in conjunction with the London Chinese Catholic Community UK to support our ESEA undocumented migrant community. We first reported our support for undocumented workers in our article here.


Since 11 April, through promotion and word of mouth, we have continued to register undocumented workers to receive their Covid-19 vaccinations through a local walk in clinic run by Hackney Public Health. We have gained the community’s trust and have helped allay their fears of reprisal due to their immigration status.


To date, we have helped vaccinate over 700 people, by coordinating their vaccination dates. On the day, our volunteers provide them with translation support, where we ensure they are aware of the risks and side effects of the vaccines. Together with Public Health Hackney, they facilitate their vaccinations in an organised and safe environment, and ensure the smooth running of the process throughout the day.


With this proven track record in working with Hackney Public Health, HCCS has recently won a bid to vaccinate the additional undocumented workers that are on our books. We are looking to work with Hackney at one of their centres to ensure maximum capacity. We are also looking to provide these community members with a health check up, something that they may not be able to readily access. Our support to these members will be organised by HCCS and supported by volunteer translators and health care professionals.


Although the majority of this community are Chinese, we have also had enquiries from Vietnamese, Malaysians, Japanese and Filipinos. We have been contacted by people of different ages. We aim to help all sectors of our ESEA community.


If you would like to get in touch with us about this or speak to us confidentially, please contact Wai Ha Lam on 07761705553, where she will be able to support you if you need to be tested or are showing symptoms of Covid 19, or signpost you to further services.


克尼華人服務中心獲撥款支援社區人仕接種疫苗

在冠狀病毒肆虐期間,克尼華人服務中心一直在協助我們社區的人仕。我們與倫敦華人天主教會合作,為東南亞社區的無証人接種疫苗。請點擊此處閱讀有關我們給與無証人仕的支援。


自四月十一日起,我們與克尼公共衛生部合作,為無証人仕接種疫苗。這群無証人仕一直因他們的移民身份而生活在恐懼之中,我們從這次的合作中,獲得他們的信任。


到目前為止,我們已協助了700多名的無証人仕接種疫苗。在接種疫苗時,我們的團隊會提供翻譯服務,讓每個接種人仕能完全明白疫苗的風險、副作用及接種後的反應,我們的合作使整個流程能順暢完成。


這次合作的成功使我們再次獲得得克尼公共衛生部撥款為更多的無証人仕接種疫苗。為了讓更多人仕受惠,我們將會在其中一所疫苗中心舉行活動。由於很多的無証人仕都沒有註冊家庭醫生,因此,他們未能全面照顧本身的健康,我們會在當日為到場人仕提供一些基本保健服務。今次的活動由克尼華人服務中心主辦,並獲得多名義工提供翻譯及專業服務。


雖然大多數的服務對象是華人,但我們亦收到其他東南亞地區人仕的查詢,如越南、馬來西亞、日本及菲律賓等,他們也來自不同的年齡。我們的主旨是為東南亞區的人仕提供協助。
