Compulsory Vaccination for Care Home Workers in England


From the 11 November 2021, new law comes into force compelling all care homes (in England only) to ensure that all workers are vaccinated against Covid-19.


The Regulations also ban a large variety of tradespeople who might need to visit a care home.


The main exceptions are care home residents, friends and relatives of care home residents, emergency help providers and children under the age of 18.


If someone does not fall within one of exceptions, the care home must not allow them entry unless they provide evidence that they have completed a course of an approved Covid vaccine, or for clinical reasons they cannot be vaccinated (religious and philosophical beliefs do not count).
