Please note - Although legislation has changed, some workplaces do still require employees to be fully vaccinated against Covid19. We would encourage you to take part in any vaccination programme recommended if you are working or volunteering in Social Care. Not having a vaccination may impact your ability to complete placement activities as part of your course due to the vulnerability of some clients you may work with.

If you think you may be medically exempt from the COVID-19 mandatory vaccination. Learners will need to provide evidence of an NHS Covid pass medical exemption. There is further guidance on how to apply for a medical exemption and prove you are unable to get vaccinated on the government website.
