The leaflets have been circulated to homes in various areas in recent days.

The flyers contain the UK Government logo – but containing anti-vaxx propaganda, the leaflets have been confirmed as fake in other parts of the country.

The leaflets, which publish false information about Covid-19 vaccines and those who have been vaccinated, have been especially posted to homes in parts of Doncaster.

The anti-vaxx leaflets were posted to homes in Norton and Campsall.

The leaflet that was posted contains a plethora of false claims relating to the coronavirus vaccines, including a quote from a supposed 'infectious disease expert' that 'vaccinated people should be put in quarantine, and should be isolated from society.'

It comes after copies of an anti-vaxx, Covid-denying 'truthpaper' were delivered to properties earlier this year.

Copies of The Light, which describes itself as ‘the only paper telling you the truth’ and ‘free from the establishment’ were delivered to a number of homes.

One angry resident, who declined to be named after being targeted with the paper said: "The whole thing is just trash from start to finish. It’s peddling dangerous rubbish that people shouldn’t be taken in by.

"These anti-vaxx idiots think they have seen the light and that they are somehow the chosen ones who have made this amazing discovery. The reality is they are a bunch of absolute morons.”
