FIRST NATIONS COMMUNITIES URGED TO IGNORE THE “JIBBER” AND SEE A “JABBER” ABOUT COVID VACCINES
Western Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are being encouraged to speak with their local clinicians about the COVID vaccine, amid concerning reports of vaccine hesitancy among vulnerable populations in rural and remote Queensland.
WQPHN is currently spearheading a new campaign to raise awareness about the importance of getting accurate information about vaccines from reliable sources.
The WQPHN’s “Jibber Jabber” campaign encourages people to ignore the “Jibber”, defined as foolish or worthless talk, and instead talk to a “Jabber”, being someone who administers a COVID vaccine jab.
The Nukal Murra Alliance, a collaboration between key Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services in Western Queensland and the WQPHN, is integral in providing the on-the-ground information that informed the campaign.
