Vaccination as a Condition of Deployment

Publication date: January 2022

The deadline is approaching for health workers who have direct, face to face contact with service users to have the Covid-19 vaccine to comply with the new regulation. Unvaccinated individuals will need to have had their first dose by 3rd February in order to have had their second dose by the 1 April 2022 deadline.

NHSE has now issued phase 2 guidance on implementation of the regulation. This includes guidance on formal processes for those not fully vaccinated, plus a set of FAQs.

Our thanks to Peter Higgins at Lancashire & Cumbria Consortium of LMCs for sharing a template letter for practices to send to staff regarding their vaccination status. Download the template letter.  

The BMA have updated their guidance on this issue which you can find here. They are also preparing FAQs for GPs and practices which will go into more detail and be more practical than the NHS guidance. We will share this as soon as it becomes available.
