Deputy launches vaccination tracking to support care sector

With mere days until new Covid jab regulations take effect, Deputy, the workforce management app, has announced features to help employers to easily track staff vaccination records and ask pre-shift questions.

The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (coronavirus) Regulations 2021, has been termed ‘no jab, no job’ by many workers in the care sector who have warned of a ‘mass exodus’ over the mandatory jabs.

Deputy customers can use features like Tagging and Pre-Shift Questions, to track vaccination status of employees and manage requirements to work.

To support business owners and managers through this difficult time, Deputy can help people managers to schedule employees’ vaccination leave and record their Covid-19 vaccination status.

By creating a training tag within the Deputy app that identifies an employee’s vaccination status, including the dates they received their vaccinations, employers can seamlessly track vaccinations and schedule staff accordingly.

“In the short term, those running care homes and services should look at what they can control to help stabilise their workforce. Expensive agency workers should provide added flexibility, not daily dependability,” said Deputy general manager for EMEA David Kelly.

“Attracting and keeping great staff requires the right tools and the right attitude - for example, empowering staff to work more flexibly and automating time-consuming administration,” he added.
