Guidance on mandatory vaccination in care homes in England

From November 2021 there will be a new legal requirement for staff working in care home settings in England to demonstrate proof of COVID- 19 vaccination. In addition to care home workers, other groups of UNISON members who visit care homes such as social workers and occupational therapists will also be required to demonstrate proof of vaccination.  UNISON staff and activists who visit care homes for recruitment purposes or to meet with members or management will also be required to demonstrate proof of vaccination.

For additional guidance for social care workers, visit the UNISON website.
