On 3 September 2021 the department of health and social care published the new guidance.
From 11 November 2021, a new law is being introduced whereby anyone working or volunteering in a care home will need to be fully vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19), unless exempt.
Staff/volunteers must have their 1st dose by 16 September 2021. This will give them time to get a 2nd dose by 11 November 2021.
The easy read guidance is for:
- Care home staff and volunteers
- Relatives and friends of residents
- Professionals who visit care homes
- Local authorities
