加拿大华人心脑协会与心脏生命基金会合作开发了一系列有关COVID-19疫苗和心脏病的患者信息手册

【环球华语2021年4月11日】目前,我们位于安大略省的医院充满了ICU患者,其中许多还年轻。我们被迫推迟许多选修手术。如果我们给更多的人接种疫苗,这种情况本可以被预防或最小化。疫苗供应有所改善,但是疫苗犹豫的问题是真实的。我们的许多中国患者不愿接种COVID-19疫苗,原因是他们接触过各种社交媒体平台,其中有许多神话和误解。

加拿大华人心脑协会(CCHABA)最近与心脏生命基金会合作开发了一系列有关COVID-19疫苗和心脏病的患者信息手册。该手册包也得到了加拿大心血管协会(CCS)的认可。在过去的两周里,我在诊所使用了这些手册,它们对于处理患者和家属对COVID-19疫苗的询问非常有帮助。

我希望您会发现此软件包对您的日常练习有用。我也希望您也可以在您认为合适的情况下,通过本地网络来帮助传播此信息包。该软件包包括英文,中文(繁体和简体)手册:

•COVID-19疫苗信息表

•十大疫苗接种技巧

Good Sunday morning.

Our hospitals in Ontario are currently swamped with ICU patients and many of them are younger. We are forced to delay many elective surgeries. This situation could have been prevented or minimized if we have more people vaccinated. The vaccine supply has improved but the issue of vaccine hesitancy is real. Many of our Chinese patients are reluctant to get inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines because of many myths and misconceptions from various social media platforms that they are exposed to.

Chinese Canadian Heart and Brain Association (CCHABA) had collaborated recently with Heart Life Foundation in developing a series of patient information brochures regarding COVID-19 vaccines and heart conditions. This brochure package has also been endorsed by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS). I have used these brochures in the last 2 weeks in my clinics and they have been extremely helpful to deal with the queries from patients and families regarding COVID-19 vaccines.

I hope you will find this package useful to your day-to-day practice. I am also hoping that you can also help to disseminate this package of info via your local network as you see fit. The package includes the English, Chinese (Traditional & Simplified) brochures:

• COVID-19 Vaccine Information Sheet
• Top 10 Vaccination Tips
