The current pandemic of Coronavirus has affected everyone’s life. The UK has been the first country in the world toapprove the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and has since then approved two more vaccines. Currently there is a big drive to immunise population using AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine along with Pfizer-BioNTech vccine.

Research has shown that many people, especially from the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds are reluctant to accept vaccination.

The BBC’s Asian Network has compiled many of these questions sent by listeners and answered by experts. For those who may not have English as a first language, doctors have also answered the questions in five languages: GujaratiPunjabiSylhetiTamil and Urdu.
