Compulsory Vaccination of Care Home workers – No Plans

The Scottish government has said it is not planning to make the vaccination of care home workers compulsory. The measure could be brought in for staff in care homes for older people in England.

Scottish Business Minister Ivan McKee said there were “no plans” to implement a similar policy in Scotland.

Scottish Care said UK government plans to mandate vaccinations had “little relevance” in Scotland as all staff had received both doses.
