Closing date: 16 February 2022

The Government consults on revoking the legislation that requires staff in health and social care working in England to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to be deployed (vaccination as a condition of deployment - VCOD). The requirement has applied to people working in care homes since 11 November 2021 and applies to patient/service user-facing roles in the wider health and social care sector from 1 April 2022.
