“The reasons for disparities in vaccine uptake are complex. Some of the groups with lower uptake rates are also among those who are at greater risk from covid, which is especially worrying. The Government must improve its understanding of why this is happening – and then take action to support more equal uptake. This problem must be solved urgently, or there is a real risk that existing health inequalities will be further exacerbated.”
We are awaiting some further guidance on how the Government plan to address this issue and will keep you updated as it is released.
