Jonathan Ashworth responds to news that people with HIV in England won’t need to disclose their status to access their Covid-19 vaccination

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, commenting on the news that people living with HIV in England won’t need to disclose their status to access their Covid-19 vaccination, said: 

“I’m delighted ministers have listened to the case the Terrence Higgins Trust, myself and MPs made and have ensured those living with HIV will be able to access vaccination via HIV clinics. 

“This is tremendously important and should mean no one living with HIV misses out on vaccination.”
