GP surgeries wrongfully rejecting undocumented migrants, leaving many unable to get Covid jab

Health and Social Care Editor

People without the right paperwork  are struggling to access Covid vaccines because they are wrongfully being turned away from GP surgeries.

An investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism found nearly 80 per cent of doctors’ practices they contacted wanted documents before they would register a patient.

This is against official policies in England, Scotland and Wales, and follows an admission by government scientists that they do not know how many people haven’t been vaccinated.
