Committee for Health & Social Care - P.2020/144

The States are asked to decide:-

Whether, after consideration of the Policy Letter entitled 'Developing the legislative framework necessary for vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 - the virus causing COVID-19', they are of the opinion:-

1. To agree, in line with the published Exit framework, that the implementation of a voluntary vaccination programme in the Bailiwick of Guernsey is a key element of the Bailiwick's response to mitigating against the risks presented by the global presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus;

2. To authorise the Committee forHealth & Social Care to implement the voluntary vaccination programme following consultation with the Policy & Resources Committee and Principal Committees and the relevant committees of the States of Alderney and the Chief Pleas of Sark;

3. To agree to amend existing legislation as set out in the Policy Letter to provide the framework necessary for the expedient implementation of a vaccination programme, including in circumstances where such a vaccine has only temporarily been authorised, recognising, notwithstanding the potential clinical and legal risks, the international effort and commitment to accelerating the availability of the vaccination while maintaining the standards for vaccine quality, safety and efficacy;

4.  To agree that the Prescription Only Medicines (Human) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Ordinance, 2009 should be amended in the manner described in the Policy Letter;

5.  To approve the draft Ordinance entitled "The Prescription Only Medicines (Human) (Bailiwick of Guernsey) (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020", attached at the Appendix to the policy letter, and to direct that the same shall have effect as an Ordinance of the States; and

6. To direct the Committee for Health & Social Care to consult (to the extent that it has not already done so) with lead committees of the States of Alderney and the Chief Pleas of Sark in order to establish whether Alderney and Sark wish to be included in the vaccination programme.
