Liz calls for strategy to vaccinate all care home staff

This week, we discovered that only 69% of care home staff in England have been vaccinated against coronavirus. In London, this is as low as 52%. This is incredibly worrying.
We need a clear strategy from the Government, that addresses lies and misinformation about the vaccine. We also need a plan to increase take-up among key groups. This will save not only the lives of care staff, but those they look after too.
I asked the Secretary of State about these figures at Health and Social Care questions. Watch my question and the response above.
