The free vitamin D supplement scheme was introduced to benefit those asked to stay indoors more than usual over the spring and summer 2020 due to national restrictions. As of 3 February, supplements had been sent to over 300,000 adults on the clinically extremely vulnerable list that have opted in to receive the supplements, and over 150,000 residents in residential and nursing care homes in England. There are no current plans to extend the scheme into winter 2021-22.
