No Jab No Job
From 11 November 2021, new laws will place obligations on registered persons and service providers to prevent anyone from entering a care home unless they have received a full course of Covid-19 vaccination, are medically exempt from vaccination or fall into one of six other exempt categories.

The rules apply not just to those who are employed in care homes, but also those who need to enter care homes either as part of their roles (such as CQC inspectors) or to provide services (such as cleaners, hairdressers and medical professionals).

So who is exempt? – the are exempt categories:

  • Those who for medical reasons cannot be vaccinated, i.e “clinically exempt”;
  • Anyone under the age of 18;
  • Friends or relatives of care home residents;
  • Members of the emergency services;
  • Those providing urgent maintenance assistance where there is a risk to life or continuity of care; and
  • Those visiting a resident who is at the end of life.

How will this affect staff in care homes? Next Sunday 5th September, Pastor Brighton Kavaloh will be shedding more light on this from 4pm to 6pm. To tune in, tap into your zoom app keying in zoom ID: 617 786 3422, entering passcode: JJG7JG. You can also follow the programme on Pastor Kavaloh’s YouTube page, searching: Brighton Kavaloh.
