Hundreds of people descended on London’s Chinatown on Thursday after a city council offered no-questions-asked COVID-19 vaccines.
NHS staff onboard a double-decker bus organized by Westminster Council began dispensing jabs without an appointment on Gerrard Street at 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.
The pop-up vaccine site was advertised on the website of the Chinese Information and Advice Centre charity, The Evening Standard reported.
“You DO NOT need to have: NHS number, any proof of address, personal identification. Undocumented migrants also welcomed. Stay safe! Get vaccinated!” the advert said.

A group of anti-vaxxers also showed up to the site to protest, including Piers Corbyn, the brother of ex-Labour leader Jeremy, the Evening Standard reported. Some protesters shouted “shame on you” at those on the vaccination bus.
