 Government is in the process of passing law in Parliament, so your NHS contract of employment will state something along the lines of,  to retain your employment status, you must ensure you comply with all legal and regulatory standards.


The regulations were laid in Parliament on 9 November 2021 and subject to parliamentary
passage will come into force on the 1 April 2022. If the regulations are approved,
unvaccinated individuals will need to have had their first dose of an approved COVID-19
vaccine by 3 February 2022 (this date is subject to change), in order to have received their
second dose by the 31 March 2022 deadline.


So your existing contract of employment would not need to be amended and if you did not qualify for a Covid vaccination exemption, your employment would be ended after giving you notice.




Clinical exemptions
Some individuals may have grounds not to have the vaccine for clinical reasons. Anyone who is unable to get vaccinated for clinical reasons will have to use the NHS COVID Pass to show their exemption status.7
The domestic NHS COVID Pass will look and work in the same way for people with clinical exemptions as it will for people who are fully vaccinated. The pass will not show that a worker has a clinical exemption. Workers will receive a confirmation letter which they should 
keep for their records and use to prove that their unable to get vaccinated. The letter will explain that the individual is medically unable to get vaccinated, the pass does not

Partnership working within and across primary care networks and ICSs are also encouraged to share resources and expert knowledge. We will engage further with primary care representatives to consider any specific guidance needs for this sector.

How can workers evidence that they are fully vaccinated?
Recognised evidence of COVID-19 vaccination
The NHS COVID pass, or equivalent from NHS Scotland, NHS Wales or the Department of Health in Northern Ireland; or
The EU Digital COVID Certificate; or
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination card; or
A certificate in English, French or Spanish issued by the competent health authority which contains:
a) the individuals full name
b) the individuals date of birth
c) the name and manufacturer of the vaccine that the individual received
d) the date that the individual received each dose of the vaccine
e) details of either the identity of the issuer of the certificate or the country of vaccination, or both.
NHS appointment cards cannot be used as proof of vaccination status.
Vaccinated abroad
Individuals who are vaccinated abroad will be required to provide evidence of their vaccination status and, where necessary, have a top-up dose with a UK authorised vaccine consistent with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) guidance on vaccines. To avoid
doubt, mixed doses (that is, where different vaccines have been administered to complete the dose schedule) will be accepted for the purposes of the vaccination requirements.


Pregnancy and Fertility

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that pregnant women should be offered COVID-19 vaccines and that pregnant women should discuss the
risks and benefits of vaccination with their healthcare professional, including the latest evidence on safety and which vaccines they should receive8. Women trying to become pregnant do not need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination and there is no evidence to
suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility.


While the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and the UK Tetralogy Service recommend the COVID-19 vaccination for
pregnant and breastfeeding women, pregnant women are eligible to request short-term medical exemptions from vaccination.


For pregnant women, the exemption expires 16 weeks after giving birth. This will allow them to become fully vaccinated after birth. A MATB1 certificate can be used to provide evidence
of exemption status

For further guidance regarding supporting pregnant women in the workplace, please refer to Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice for pregnant employees - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and COVID-19 vaccines, pregnancy and breastfeeding (rcog.org.uk)
