Vaccines for all? Undocumented Migrants and Homeless People Left Behind
30 June 2021
In October 2020, the European Commission identified “ensuring equitable and affordable access for all in the EU to an affordable vaccine as early as possible” as a key objective of COVID-19 vaccine deployment.
And yet, in several EU countries multiple factors, including poor government information campaigns and obstacles in the registration process, are leaving people behind, including undocumented migrants and people experiencing homelessness.
Join EPHA, Human Rights Watch, the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants and Médecins du Monde to discuss what still needs to happen to ensure #VaccineEquity for all in Europe.
