Up to 1.3 million people living in the UK unlawfully can receive a coronavirus vaccine without any risk of being deported, the Home Office has claimed. 

The Government is aiming to reach people not registered to a GP, in an effort to inoculate as many of the population as possible. 

That means illegal immigrants can register with a doctor’s surgery and not fear any action from the Home Office. It is hoped that the amnesty on immigration status checks will be a further boost to the vaccination roll out.

A Government spokesman explained: ‘Coronavirus vaccines will be offered to everyone living in the UK free of charge, regardless of immigration status. Those registered with a GP are being contacted at the earliest opportunity and we are working closely with partners and external organisations to contact those who are not registered with a GP to ensure they are also offered the vaccine.’
