Vaccinating Migrants Against COVID-19: How We Can Do Better

We’re nearly two years into the Covid-19 pandemic now and we’ve seen many things unfold. One of which is how challenging it has been to manage the vaccination process for non-citizen communities. On the security end of things we’ve seen authorities conduct detentions of undocumented migrants during the lockdowns amid heightened border controls. But on the health end of the spectrum, we’ve seen efforts to coordinate vaccinations for the migrant community through industry employers, or through walk-ins. However, some challenges still remain up until today in the process of getting these groups vaccinated. We speak to Adrian Pereira, Executive Director of the North-South Initiative, Dr Tharani Loganathan, public health specialist from Universiti Malaya, and New Su Shern, founder and president of Project Liber8 to find out more.
