The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has discussions on a wide range of issues with his Ministerial counterparts, including the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

As key partners in integrated care systems and sustainability and transformation partnerships, local authorities are closely involved in supporting the vaccine deployment programme. This includes the selection of sites for vaccination centres; critical partnership working to manage vaccinating in care homes; local communications on vaccine messaging; and engaging with vulnerable or disproportionately impacted groups.
