Black, Asian and minority ethnic views on the Covid-19 vaccine, Healthwatch Cambden
In February, Healthwatch Camden worked with three local community organisations to survey 223 people about their views on the Covid-19 vaccine and the local rollout. Nearly all responders (97 per cent) were from black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds. Among the findings were: the more knowledge someone felt they had about the vaccine, the greater the likelihood of them wanting to be vaccinated; people receive most of the information about the vaccine from television and social media; and younger people and people from black or black British backgrounds were less likely to get the vaccine, which is consistent with exis...

A longer look at COVID-19 and neuropsychiatric outcomes, Lancet Psychiatry
Early in the pandemic, concerns were raised about the potential for serious and widespread neurological and psychiatric adverse outcomes following COVID-19, on the basis of a systematic review of observational studies done in patients infected during previous coronavirus epidemics. Interpretation was hampered by the absence of a comparison group of individuals who had similar infections. The first large-scale attempt to redress this issue was published by Maxime Taquet and colleagues who found, using real-world data, that a first psychiatric diagnosis was more common in patients with COVID-19 in the 14 –90 days after...

The Digital Divide: Amplifying health inequalities for people with severe mental ill health in the time of COVID-19., BJPsych
During COVID-19, health provision and information resources have been increasingly provided via digital means (e.g. websites, apps) and this will become a standard practice beyond the pandemic.

This has been referred to as the " Digital Divide " . For any new digital means introduced in clinical practice as an augment of health care service provision, issues of accessibility, acceptability, and usability should be addressed b...

There is increasing concern about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and young people's mental health.

One dose of COVID-19 vaccine can cut household transmission by up to half, PHE
PHE's latest research shows that those who do become infected 3 weeks after receiving one dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or AstraZeneca vaccine were 38%-49% less likely to pass the virus on to their household than those unvaccinated. Protection was seen from around 14 days after vaccination, with similar levels of protection regardless of age of cases or contacts. This protection is on top of the reduced risk of a vaccinated person developing symptomatic infection in the first place, which is around 60 to 65% – 4 weeks after one dose of either vaccine.
