Compulsory vaccinations in care: what's next?

Please note: this episode was recorded on 9 November 2021 and is accurate at the time of release. However, as this is an evolving topic, we recommend listeners seek specific advice on any individual cases.

From 11 November 2021, all care home staff and anyone entering a care home in England (unless self-certified as exempt or medically exempt) must be fully vaccinated.

This legislation has presented some significant challenges to employers ever since it was announced. Now, as we move into the next stage of this process – and with the self-exemption status period running until 23 December – it’s important to know what your next steps are as an employer.

Join our host and Head of Employment Law, Gill McAteer, as she welcomes our Professional Support Leader, Emma McGrath, as they discuss:

  • What the guidance means and the challenges which care businesses are now facing
  • Exemptions from the regulations
  • The temporary self-exemption period and what are the next steps for employers
  • The implications of the regulations beyond the care sector
