Updates from the Scottish Social Services Council - vaccinations and the Flexible Workforce Development FundUpdates from the Scottish Social Services Council - vaccinations and the Flexible Workforce Development Fund

The Scottish Social Services Council have issued information on vaccinations. While encouraging care workers to get the vaccine, and providing further information, the information confirms that where registered workers are not able or decide not to have the vaccine this will not affect their registration status. It reminds care workers of the importance of maintainig other infection control measures, even if vaccinated, such as using the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
