The Green Book chapter on COVID-19 states that all staff who have frequent face-to-face clinical contact with patients and who are directly involved in patient care, in either secondary or primary care/community settings, are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This includes temporary staff, such as those working in the COVID-19 vaccination programme, students, trainees and volunteers who are working with patients.
