Covid Vaccines for health and care staff – Government Consultation

The government has finished a consultation about making COVID vaccines compulsory for health and care staff in England.

They intend to bring in new regulations to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for anyone deployed by a registered person delivering Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated activities who has direct, face-to-face contact with service users. This includes health and care staff with clinical and non-clinical roles, for example: care workers, health care assistants, nurses, paramedics, ODPs, receptionists, managers, ward clerks, porters and cleaners.
