To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Kamall on 7 October (HL2777), what advice they have given to primary care providers seeking financial support to give initial or booster vaccines in areas which have a high proportion of the population with English as a second language where (1) translation services, and (2) longer vaccination appointments, may be necessary.

Primary care providers of local COVID-19 vaccination services should ensure that patients have access to translation and British Sign Language services as required to support consent, mental capacity and clinical assessments as appropriate. Primary care providers can request support for reasonable additional costs from their local commissioner, which will assess if claims for such costs are reasonable and represent value for money.
