To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 20 December 2021 to Question 88623 on Coronavirus: Vaccination, for what reasons it is Government policy that the NHS is not required to (a) check the immigration status of those receiving covid-19 vaccinations and (b) report undocumented migrants to the Home Office.

For public health protection, it is important that those who arrive in the United Kingdom, including undocumented migrants, are not deterred from coming forward for COVID-19 vaccinations. Therefore, neither a National Health Service number or registration with a general practitioner is required to receive a vaccination.
