Covid-19 has disproportionately affected Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups in the UK. Data has shown that members of minority ethnic groups are more hesitant than others to have the COVID-19 vaccine for a variety of reasons including a perceived risk of harm from the vaccine and a lack of confidence in it. GP leaders are concerned that if minority ethnic groups have a lower vaccine uptake then COVID-19 will remain a threat to these communities unnecessarily. High vaccine uptake is vital to the success of the vaccine programme in helping to defeat COVID-19. Without high uptake across our communities, our lives, and those of our loved ones, will remain at high risk from this devastating virus.
