UKHCA Media Release

Progress of vaccination of homecare workers against COVID-19 - 03/02/2021

UKHCA’s CEO, Dr Jane Townson has written a blog entitled: "Progress of vaccination of homecare workers against COVID-19". The information of which is correct on the 2nd February 2021.

A rapid survey of homecare providers’ experience of vaccination of the homecare workforce in England against COVID-19 was conducted by United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) from 27 to 29 January 2021. The survey covered employers of staff who are in group 2 of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s priority list (“JCVI-2”).

Data indicates that around 32 per cent of the workforce in the sample already appear to have been vaccinated. Given the numbers of staff involved and the extremely short period for these workers to obtain vaccination, it is to the immense credit of everyone concerned, including local government, central government, the NHS, GPs, primary care networks and employers that this has been achieved.
