Coronavirus vaccination: Information for advocates

9 December 2020

The development of vaccinations for coronavirus presents a potential life changing and world transforming advance. It is vital that people have access to vaccination once available and that decisions about administering the vaccination are taken lawfully. 

This guidance aims to help advocates support people in relation to decision taking about coronavirus vaccination.

It assumes an advocate’s existing knowledge and understanding of their role and the Mental Capacity Act, and provides information to help apply this in a new circumstance.
