You should have already received the e-mail on Friday 9th September that included the letter from Chris Badger regarding winter vaccinations. If you didn’t then you can read it here. 

Please read this letter carefully.

As we all work closely or directly with care staff, or are in care settings or hospitals, it means that you can also use this Letter of Entitlement to get your COVID seasonal booster ASAP as an HCPA employee.

Please follow the instructions, which are:

  1. Save the letter to either print or show on your phone: Click here for the ID letter
  2. Get a recent payslip ready to take with you: (in your emails)
  3. Book an appointment for your Booster: National Booking Service (choose Health and Social Care worker)

The Flu vaccine process is for CQC Registered Care Settings only, but as in previous years, if you go to a pharmacy such as Boots or Superdrug or anywhere else and pay for a flu vaccine, we will refund the cost of this in your pay when you show us the receipt (capped at £11).

So, in essence, HCPA will pay for your flu jab.

We hope this is helpful!
