COVID-19 vaccination and mental capacity: rapid response guidance note

Together with other members of the 39 Essex Chambers Court of Protection team, I have produced a rapid response guidance note on COVID-19 vaccination and mental capacity, available here.    We will update it when – as we anticipate – the DHSC’s MCA/DoLS Emergency Guidance is updated to include guidance on vaccination, but hopefully our guidance note will help with issues that are becoming very pressing as the prospect of vaccination becomes very real.
