Vaccination as a condition of deployment (VCOD) for all healthcare workers

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has formally announced that individuals undertaking CQC regulated activities in England must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no later than 1stApril 2022 to protect patients, regardless of their employer, including secondary and primary care.

The government regulations will come into effect from 1stApril 2022. It will become a legal requirement that any individual employed or engaged for the purposes of the provision of a CQC regulated activity and who has face-to-face contact with people receiving care must be fully vaccinated with an authorise COVID-19 vaccine, or be able to demonstrate that they fall into the limited listed exemptions. This means that unvaccinated individuals will need to have had their first dose by 3rdFebruary 2022, in order to have received their second dose by the 1stApril 2022 deadline.

If your role is in scope of the new regulations i.e. CQC regulated activity with face-to-face contact with patients (including non-clinical roles with incidental face-to-face contacts with patients or service users), we will only be able to employ you if you are vaccinated or are able to demonstrate that you fall within one of the exemptions listed in the VCOD regulations
