What are the Covid-19 vaccination requirements for placements in healthcare and social care settings?

Vaccination against Covid-19 is not currently a mandatory requirement. However, professional bodies continue to expect healthcare workers to be vaccinated in order to best protect patients and colleagues and themselves. The approach that individual placement providers may take in relation to vaccination status and deployment of their staff, and access to students on placement, in different areas of their organisations may vary. To protect patients, colleagues and themselves and to minimise any impact on study we strongly advise students to ensure their vaccination status is up to date.
