Seniors COVID-19 stories

ECCV spoke to inspiring seniors from our diverse communities and asked them to share their vaccination story. Seniors from Greek, Italian, Arabic, Hindi, Punjabi, Turkish backgrounds share their stories


Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many seniors from migrant and refugee communities have become isolated to protect themselves against COVID-19. While vaccine uptake among older people has been high, many are still struggling with misinformation and hesitancy, which is preventing people from getting vaccinated.

The Ethnic Communities Council of VictoriaExternal Link interviewed a number of seniors from diverse backgrounds and created this series of videos in Greek, Italian, Arabic, Hindi, Punjabi, and Turkish.

Here we share Randa's touching story. Randa is the volunteer President of the Arabic Womens Seniors Group Inc.
