Video to help those affected by a phobia of needles

8 July 2021

If you, or someone you know, would like help to deal with needle phobia, this video developed by Dr Vic Jeganathan could help.


Aware that up to 10% of people are affected by a phobia of needles, particularly in the younger age group, Vic and his colleagues developed the video to help ease anxieties and offer practical support and advice to anyone worried about getting the COVID-19, or any other, vaccine.

Vic is a research officer with Derbyshire Community Health Services who works for our public health team on COVID-related matters.
