VODG Member Meeting | Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination in Health and Wider Social Care

Thank you to everyone that attended the recent (5 October) VODG meeting in which colleagues from across the VODG membership came together to discuss the government consultation on making vaccination a condition of deployment in the health and wider social care sector, as well as flu vaccination. Your engagement and contributions made for a rich and insightful discussion.

During the meeting, we held three polls to gauge current vaccination levels in members’ services, as well as support for (or against) the proposals. The results of these polls can be viewed here.

Possible Next Steps
We are now in the process of distilling members’ contributions to help inform a collective VODG submission to the consultation. As mentioned in the meeting, we actively encourage members to submit their own responses by the deadline on 22 October. Should you wish to have sight of VODG’s response, please email [email protected] and we will share once finalised.
