Vaccination as a condition of deployment across health and social care

The government revoked their regulation on vaccination as a condition of deployment (VCOD) in health and social care on Tuesday 15 March 2022. CQC has shared a statement on their website about how this impacts our regulation of health and social care services.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has published a FAQ document to support care providers with this legislative change.

Their statement confirms that they will no longer require registered managers of care homes to show records of COVID-19 vaccination of staff and visiting professionals.
Vaccination remains the best defence against COVID-19. Download vaccine campaign materials and make use of this booster narrative for adult social care to help you and your colleagues make informed choices.

Vaccination booster guidance

COVID-19 vaccination: spring booster resources were published on 3 March to support spring vaccination of people aged 75 years and older, residents in care homes for older people and those aged 12 years and over with a weakened immune system. It is imperative that the consenting process for care home residents is underway to avoid any delays to the vaccination of these vulnerable individuals.

Appointments will be available from the National Booking Service shortly with the below leaflet available to order for free.
