About 96% of health care workers in Guernsey are vaccinated against the coronavirus

Health officials said that there are no plans to force health and nursing staff in Guernsey to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

British Health Minister Sajid Javid announced that all frontline NHS workers in England Must be fully vaccinated before April.

However, the Guernsey Health Commission stated that it is currently not considering adopting the same policy.

He said that the adoption rate of local employees has reached 96%.

An HSC spokesperson said that because of the high usage rate, they did not think it was necessary.

The spokesperson added: “We also believe that the best way to encourage people to receive vaccines is to explain why they are advised to do so.”
