People living with HIV in England can now choose to have their Covid vaccine through specialist clinics, without notifying their GP.

NHS England has updated its guidance for people not comfortable with sharing their status.

Everyone with HIV should be in vaccine priority groups four or six, and offered a jab by mid-April at the latest.

But campaigners worried stigma would cause some to miss out.

The updated guidance, obtained by the i newspaper, follows the lead of NHS Wales which put the same measures in place last week.
