It’s Very Likely that Covid Jabs are Going to be Mandatory for Nurses

It’s very likely that those who work in the NHS are going to have to be vaccinated against Covid if they want to keep their jobs. Those who work in a nurse agency or those who are part of a nursing recruitment agency are going to have to take up the offer of the jab as there is a strong indication that it is going to be made the law. The comments on the controversial move are currently being consulted on and the government are now overlooking their winter plans. They believe that it’s likely that the NHS frontline staff and those who work in social care will have to be vaccinated. In the very same speech, it has been confirmed that all frontline staff are going to be offered a booster jab and that this is going to be done alongside adults who are over the age of 50. It is also going to include some of the more vulnerable groups as well.

So far, unions have been critical of the fact that there has been no recognition for the workforce shortage and that there is nobody talking about the wellbeing of staff in the wake of the last year and a half. Javid has stated that the government have a five-pillar plan when it comes to living with the virus during the more difficult winter months. He’s said that there is going to be a prime focus on vaccinations and that pharmaceutical defences are going to be a priority. The test and trace system is going to be supporting both NHS and social care and on top of this, they are going to be encouraging people as much as possible to see if they can keep any seasonal illnesses at bay. They are also going to be trying to pursue a more international approach when it comes to tackling the virus if possible.
