On 6 January 2022, the Government made new legislation, approved by Parliament, which amended the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. This means that health and care employers in England will not be allowed to deploy anyone who hasn’t had at least two doses in a patient-facing CQC-regulated role, unless they are exempt.
To be fully vaccinated, anyone who has not yet had their first dose will need to do this by 3 February 2022, in order to have received their second dose by the 1 April 2022 deadline. The regulations apply to any individual carrying out face to face CQC regulated activity, regardless of their employer, including secondary and primary care, and apply equally across the public (NHS) and independent health sectors.
