Because everybody working in a care home in England must now be completely vaccinated against Covid-19, Adzuna predicts a significant increase in the number of job ads needing evidence of vaccination in November. By April 1, 2022, all front-line health professionals in England will be completely vaccinated.
In October, 2.03 percent of job postings in the social care industry and 0.91 percent in healthcare and nursing required the vaccine.
However, Adzuna discovered that employers in other sectors, such as charity (0.55 percent of jobs listed in this sector in October) and domestic help and cleaning, also required immunizations (0.26 percent ).
The Equality and Human Rights Commission concluded earlier this year that requiring Covid-19 vaccinations for some sectors, including health and social care, was “appropriate.”
In the United States, employees at organisations with 100 or more workers must be completely vaccinated against Covid-19 by January or be tested weekly for the virus. A total of 84 million workers are expected to be affected.
