The Bishop of Buckingham has joined several church leaders in a campaign to target Covid vaccination misinformation.

This is part of the NHS-backed #GiveHope campaign, where bishops and church leaders have joined forces in sharing video messages to encourage communities in seeking accurate information on vaccines, hold local conversations, and encourage one another to take up offers of vaccines.

Several bishops and leaders have taken part which include Buckingham’s Bishop, Alan Wilson.

Sarah Bowie, who is the communications officer at the Diocese of Oxford, said: “While uptake of the vaccine so far has met Government targets, significant numbers indicating mistrust, including in some UKME communities, mean that some people in younger age-groups may be less likely to take up the vaccine than the groups targeted to date.”
