QuoteMr Javid also said it was "highly likely" frontline NHS staff and those in wider social care settings will need to have Covid-19 and flu vaccinations in order to be deployed.The health secretary added that the government would be "keeping an open mind" and waiting for the results of a consultation but he believed this would be "an important step in protecting those at greatest risk".He said a "Plan B" had also been prepared with measures "that we can call upon only if they are needed and supported by the data to prevent unsustainable pressure on the NHS".This could include legally mandating face coverings in certain settings, he said, while a system of vaccine passports was also being held "in reserve"."As well as these three steps, we'd consider a further measure of asking people to work from home if they can for a limited time if that is supported by the data," he told MPs."Any responsible government must prepare for all eventualities, and although these measures are not an outcome anyone wants, it's one we need to be ready for just in case."
