This Morning published this video item, entitled “This Morning Doctors Unite to Urge BAME Communities to Take Up The Vaccine | This Morning” – below is their description.
Over 6 million people in the UK have now had their first Covid-19 vaccine, but SAGE and GPs across England have raised the alarm that large numbers of people from BAME communities are reluctant to take up the offer of immunisation. With dangerous misinformation about the jab circulating on social media, and others conflicted over their religious beliefs, our This Morning doctors are now uniting to urge members of BAME communities to get the jab. Dr Ranj, Dr Zoe and Dr Nighat, kick-start our life saving campaign to encourage BAME Communities to take up the vaccine!
