Responding to a notice advertising a vaccination drive among illegal migrants, they flocked in their thousands to Chinatown, in central London. As the afternoon wore on, long queues of poor, starving and homeless people, mostly of Chinese origin and most wearing facemasks, stretched around the streets of Soho.

The crowds gathered following a notice issued by the Chinese Information and Advice Centre (CIAC), urging undocumented migrants to come forward.

It read: "A vaccine bus is available in London Chinatown to offer free vaccine jabs to the community without an appointment. You do not need to have NHS number, any proof of address, or provide personal identification."

The notice, which said the bus would operate between 12pm and 5pm on Thursday, continued: “Undocumented migrants also welcomed – no details or identity will be passed on to the police or immigration. Please tell all your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, to take this vaccine. All current age categories welcomed. Get vaccinated and claim your £5 gift voucher.  A free cup of tea and biscuit."

The bus was organised with the backing of Westminster council and more buses are scheduled to move all over the country, to areas such as gypsy camp sites, soup kitchens where the poor and homeless frequent and areas of vaccine hesitancy, with door to door confrontations a possibility. 

Anti-vaxxer Piers Corbyn, brother of ex-Labour leader Jeremy, turned up to lead a protest urging people not to get the jab. A group of women chanted “shame on you” at people on board the bus.
