Locum pharmacy technicians urged to get COVID-19 vaccination

Locum pharmacy technicians working on the frontline across primary care are encouraged to ensure they take up the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is offered to them.

Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for England Keith Ridge, along with the other Chief Professional Officers has written to colleagues highlighting the importance of getting vaccinated. An NHS number or GP registration is not required to receive a vaccination, nor for booking in for one. Hospital hubs, pharmacy and GP-led local vaccination services are all offering COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible frontline health and social care staff.
