BREAKING: Covid vaccine made mandatory for all frontline NHS staff in England from April 1
The Daily Mirror says Covid vaccines will be made mandatory for all frontline NHS staff in England – or they face losing their jobs, the government announced today.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid confirmed the jab will be a “condition of deployment” for more than a million health workers, like it will become this week for care home staff.
The NHS change is expected to take force from April 1, pending parliamentary approval.
Patient-facing NHS staff without a medical exemption will need to have had both jabs – sparking fears of a staff exodus.
