Care home workers who are yet to be vaccinated will need their first dose by 16 September 2021.  You can organise to have this at BCHC via the National Booking System:-

You can read more about the Government’s decision to make vaccination mandatory for care home staff on the gov.uk website:-

Please note that we are unable to become involved in any discussions you may be having with your employer about being vaccinated.  Those who are medically exempt from vaccination should already be aware of this 

ACAS have also put together some very useful guidance and advice for employees who may be concerned about the Covid19 vaccine and offer tips on how to approach this with your employer.  You can read the guidance here:-
