  • VIDEO: LOCAL GP DISPELS AND DEBUNKS THE MYTHS THAT ARE PREVENTING THE BAME COMMUNITY FROM STEPPING FORWARD FOR VACCINATION




    There are concerns expressed within Salford  regarding hesitancy from some members of the black, asian, and minority ethnic communities to have to have the Covid-19 vaccination.

    Dr Ugo Umeadi who is a GP at Cleggs Lane Medical Practice in Salford and he has made a video calling for more uptake of the vaccine whilst at the same time debunking some myths and misinformation which surrounds it.

    He explains why having the vaccine is the safest, most effective way to tackle the virus 

    Analysis of NHS England COVID-19 vaccination figures show that people of black ethnicity are half as likely as people of white ethnicity to get vaccinated. People of Asian ethnicity are under two thirds as likely as their white counterparts to accept vaccination.

    England's Deputy Chief Medical Officer says it "really concerns" him that fewer BAME people may get the Covid vaccine.

    Vaccination figures show that 91% of all recipients of COVID-19 jabs have been white, despite BAME people making up 13.6% of the population. Just 7.8% of all vaccines have been administered to these communities.

    A campaign to engage with the communities to assure them of the safety and importance of having the vaccine is now underway across the whole of the country.
