UKHCA on the Covid-19 vaccine for homecare workersUKHCA on the Covid-19 vaccine for homecare workers

Commenting on the Covid-19 vaccinations for the adult social care sector, including homecare workers, UKHCA's Policy Director Colin Angel said:

“We are really encouraged that employers tell us that they expect a high take-up of the coronavirus vaccine amongst the homecare workforce. It is really important for our front-line workers, and for the safety and confidence of people using essential care and support at home.
 
UKHCA has been working with the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England to ensure that the vaccination process will be effective. It needs to satisfy high levels of demand and must cover the wide range of working arrangements amongst our workforce, including those who may work a significant distance from their employers’ base.
 
“The date for wide-scale vaccination of homecare workers and personal assistants has not yet been confirmed. We, like everyone else, hope that it will be announced as soon as it is agreed.”
