Project #20:
Ethnic disparities in COVID19 outcomes in London: evaluation of COVID19 vaccination programme.

  • Type: Service evaluation
  • Topic areas: COVID vaccine eligibility/coverage; Other/indirect impacts of COVID on health/healthcare

This study will explore the impact of COVID-19 on those of ethnic minority backgrounds in London throughout the pandemic and determine whether the vaccination programme has made a difference in ethnic disparities in health outcomes. We will also look at potential mechanisms through which COVID-19 has an adverse effect on people of minority ethnic backgrounds, these include whether there is a greater impact from certain health conditions, living environments, certain health behaviours such as vaccination uptake.
