The Vermont Department of Health has information on COVID-19 available at their website in several languages.
Additionally, UVM Medical Center has a page of translated COVID-19 guidance, and community members have also created a YouTube channel of COVID-19 information in different languages. For translated flu information, please visit the CDC’s website.
If lack of English language skills presents a barrier for access to care, patients have the right to an interpreter at no cost. At CHCB, telephone interpreters are the preferred method at all of our sites, ensuring both consistent quality and confidentiality. For deaf patients, both in-person and video interpreting are available.
An average of 22 different languages is requested monthly through our interpreter service, and 10% of all patient visits use interpreter support. CHCB also offers a personalized welcome orientation to newly-arrived refugees, asylees and immigrants at our Riverside Health Center.
