These regulations require registered persons (service providers) at all Care Quality Commission-registered care homes (which provide accommodation together with nursing or personal care) to ensure that anyone who works or volunteers in the indoor premises of that care home in England must demonstrate that they have been vaccinated or have an exemption.
Since 11 November 2021, anyone working or volunteering in a care home has needed to be fully vaccinated against coronavirus (COVID-19), unless exempt. These conditions were updated by regulations that came into force on 6 January 2022 and additional regulations that will come into force on 1 April 2022.
In the English language version, updated the sections 'If an individual has been vaccinated outside of the UK', 'Groups that can get a medical exemption', 'How to demonstrate your vaccination status' and 'Exemptions' with more information on temporary and formal medical exemptions.
