Wales makes it easier for people with HIV to get the coronavirus vaccine after the ‘GP status rule’ is lifted

People with HIV in Wales will no longer need to disclose their status when receiving the coronavirus vaccine.

Those living with the immunological condition in the UK will receive the Covid-19 vaccine in phase 6 termination, after people over 65 and along with those with other health issues.

By now, however, people with HIV had to tell their GP if they wanted to get their strokes as soon as possible.

This rule provoked harsh criticism from activists and charities. The Terrence Higgins Trust argued fear of the consequences of discrimination in many people living with HIV by not disclosing their HIV status to the GP.

However, the Welsh Government has now removed that rule – in what the UK is first.

Cardiff South and Penarth MP Stephen Doughty, who chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS, welcomed the decision.

He said: “It is fantastic to see Wales leading the way for HIV / AIDS again. Sadly for many, HIV-related stigma can affect access to other health services.

“This decision means that those people living with HIV can get the Covid vaccine in the best way possible. Now we have to see other parts of the UK follow suit.”

Richard Angell, Head of Policy and Public Affairs at the Terrence Higgins Trust said: “It’s a great orst that the Welsh Government has heard our campaign.

“This is a massive step forward for many people living with HIV – getting the Covid-19 vaccine should be about keeping people safe from the coronavirus and not dependent on discovering your HIV status and worrying about coping. “I hope others follow their example.”

According to the latest statistics, there were 2,378 people living and having access to HIV-related care in Wales in 2019.
