More than 2.5m people in England to get free vitamin D
Care home residents and clinically vulnerable to be offered four-month supply
More than 2.5 million people in England are to be offered a free supply of vitamin D by the government, officials have said.
Care homes in England will automatically receive supplies of the supplement for their residents in plans announced on Saturday. People on the clinically extremely vulnerable list will be sent a letter offering them the chance to opt in for a supply to their homes.
The free deliveries will start in January, providing four months’ worth of vitamin D to up to 2.7 million people.
Public Health England (PHE) advises everyone to take 10 microgrammes of vitamin D a day between October and early March, particularly the elderly, people who do not go outside and those with dark skin.
