Camden’s lead for vaccination of the frontline social care workforce in the borough has sent an email that sets out key information on eligibility for vaccination under this priority cohort, information on a Q&A session where you can find out more, and an email address to contact Camden in relation to any queries.
The email sets out who is eligible under the social care workforce definition and has details of the DHSC Definition and exclusions.  You can read the email here.
