These regulations require registered persons (service providers) at all Care Quality Commission-registered care homes (which provide accommodation together with nursing or personal care) to ensure that anyone who works or volunteers in the indoor premises of that care home in England must demonstrate that they have been vaccinated or have an exemption.

Translations will follow shortly.

The easy-read version in English of this guidance is currently being updated.
