NCVO issues updated on Vaccination requirement for health and social care volunteers and workers

From 1 April 2022, anyone volunteering or working in patient-facing and non-clinical roles in health and social care will need to be fully vaccinated against covid-19. If this applies to you, you’ll need to receive your first dose of the vaccine by 3 February 2022.

The regulations apply to health and social care volunteers and workers who carry out CQC-regulated activity; those who have direct, face-to-face contact with service users and are aged 18 and over. It includes people volunteering and working in non-clinical, ancillary roles who enter areas used for CQC-regulated activity as part of their role and those who deliver social care with patients.

An organisation will be legally required to demonstrate the covid-19 vaccination status of their volunteers and workers and will need to collect, store and use information about this in line with UK Data Protection Regulations.
