Coronavirus: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL13147, tabled on 8 February 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to provide as much detail as possible on (1) those who have refused COVID-19 vaccination, and (2) those who have not responded to invitations for COVID-19 vaccination, (a) to local public health directors and their staff, and (b) to local primary care networks and clinical commissioning groups; if they plan to provide such information, when they will do so; and what assessment they have made of the potential to use such information to undertake local COVID-19 tracing and vaccine promotion with these groups.

There are currently no specific plans to collect data on vaccination refusal or non-respondence. NHS England and NHS Improvement publish daily, weekly and monthly data on the progress of the vaccination programme across England.

At a local level, local authority directors of public health receive daily updates on vaccine uptake in their areas, by Middle Layer Super Output Area and key subgroups including by gender and ethnicity. Directors of Public Health are provided with this information to support local delivery approaches and improve uptake across all communities.
