MPs Support Compulsory Vaccinations for Care Home Staff

Compulsory vaccinations

Following a consultation by the Department of Health and Social Care, MPs have approved compulsory vaccinations. This is for all UK care home staff. Unless care home staff have a medical exemption, from October 2021, anyone working in a care home registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) must be double jabbed.

Care home workers refusing the Covid-19 vaccination will be issued with a notice period. Moreover, access to their workplace will be refused. It will be unlawful for care homes to allow their employees onto their premises without proof of double vaccination.

Approved by 319 votes to 246, with a majority of 73, Conservative MPs criticised the Government. They raised concerns regarding the lack of any impact assessment. Questions were asked as to why this was not available in the first instance.

On the issue surrounding the lack of an impact assessment regarding compulsory vaccinations, Conservative MP William Wragg said:

“Ninety minutes on a statutory instrument to fundamentally change the balance of human rights in this country is nothing short of a disgrace. The fact no impact assessment exists—and I contend that it does not exist. And if that is proven to be the case, then I’m afraid the minister will be in a tricky position if she contends it does. And it doesn’t—is a disgrace.”

Mr Wragg went on to refer to the case of a care worker. The care worker fears losing her job as a result of the compulsory vaccination regulations. He asked:

“Is that what we’re prepared to do to our fellow citizens as a Conservative government? It’s absolute lunacy. You would expect this in a communist country.”

Chairman of the Conservative 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, said:

“I hope the minister will accept on reflection that it is simply wrong to bring these measures forward without giving the House that impact assessment in advance.

He went on to add:

“This is a very serious innovation; a legal requirement being imposed for people to undertake a medical intervention which may be against their will is a remarkable change in our law.”

Earlier this week, the official UK government website for data and insights on coronavirus (COVID-19) published data reporting 36,660 coronavirus cases and 50 deaths within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test.

Care organisations have expressed concerns regarding compulsory vaccinations of care home staff in care homes. Furthermore, they have previously stated that this could cause recruitment issues.

Governments for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have announced that they have no plans to introduce compulsory vaccinations for care home staff.
