Front line health and care workers

Pin It

Frontline health and care workers, who provide direct care for patients need to come forward for their vaccination now as we continue to protect the most vulnerable members of our community.

Frontline health and care workers should have their first, second and booster vaccine.

You can access first, second or booster vaccines through your organisation’s vaccination team or alternatively through the national booking system, calling 119 or by visiting a walk-in clinic where no appointment is needed.

You can book, or attend a walk in clinic for your booster vaccine 3 months after your second vaccine - you may be asked to show proof of this.

If you work or visit a care home for work purposes, it is now a legal requirement to be fully vaccinated, find out more here.

From April 2022 it will be a legal requirement for all NHS staff who have face-to-face contact with patients to be double vaccinated against COVID-19. You must have your first dose no later than 3 February 2022 and your second dose no later than 31 March 2022 to meet this national requirement.
