On 22 July 2021, the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2021 (the “Regulations”) became law, introducing a requirement for all care home staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
As a result, all people who enter a care home, regardless of their role, must be vaccinated before they start work, unless they are exempt.
