Homeless people to be prioritised for vaccine in England and Wales

Homeless people will now be prioritised for a vaccine in England and Wales.

Today, Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary, has now accepted advice from the JVCI ( Joint committee on vaccination and immunisation) that there should now be a consideration for homeless people to receive the vaccine as part of priority group of six.

What is priority group six?

Priority group six includes adults in the age range of between 16 to 65 who are considered to be at risk. People in this group included those with a learning difficulty, heart problems and people with a severe weight issue.

Professor Wei Shen Lim, JCVI Covid-19 chairman, said: “The JCVI’s advice on Covid-19 vaccine prioritisation was developed with the aim of preventing as many deaths as possible.

“People experiencing homelessness are likely to have health conditions that put them at higher risk of death from Covid-19.

“This advice will help us to protect more people who are at greater risk, ensuring that fewer people become seriously ill or die from the virus.”
