No estimate has been made as this data is not currently collected. NHS England and NHS Improvement are considering options for collecting data on vaccination uptake among general practitioners and wider staff groups in primary care in light of plans to make the COVID-19 vaccination compulsory as a condition of deployment. Subject to Parliamentary approval, this will come into force on 1 April 2022.
