Example of a supportive flu vaccine yarn

The information in this downloadable PDF presents an example of an actual flu vaccine yarn (conversation) between an immunisation provider and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patient. 

As a provider, you can use this document for ideas about what to say and how to say it. It is not meant to be prescriptive, feel free to adapt. 

To have a good vaccination yarn, it is important to first build rapport with the patient and make the service and the consultation culturally safe. It is also important to ask about vaccination status and offer vaccination at any appointment. 

To find out how to build rapport and cultural safety, and how to offer vaccination opportunistically, see Talking about vaccination with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.
