To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what calculation he has made of the last date that a person working for the NHS, who is covered by the Government's Vaccination as a Condition of Deployment, would be to receive their first covid-19 vaccination in order to have received both covid-19 vaccinations by the April deadline.

For all COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United Kingdom, the clinical advice states there should be an eight-week interval between first and second doses. Therefore, existing National Health Service staff would require a first dose by 3 February in order to have received a second dose by 1 April.
