On 13 February we published our United Kingdom COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake Plan, which aims to improve uptake across all communities. The approach set out in the plan is underpinned by four enablers at national, regional and local level. These are: working in partnership; removing barriers to access; data and information; and conversations and engagement.

There are ongoing initiatives at the national and local level to encourage vaccine uptake among the adult social care workforce. The Department is developing communications materials to encourage vaccine uptake, which are being shared with social care stakeholders to use in conversations with members of the workforce who are recognised as clinically vulnerable.
