These Regulations amend regulation 5 of the Vaccine Damage Payments Regulations 1979 (which specifies the cases in which vaccinations given outside the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man to serving members of Her Majesty’s Forces or members of their families are to be treated as carried out in England). The amendment widens the definition of the family of serving members of Her Majesty’s Forces to include civil partners of such members and persons who live together with such members as husband and wife or as if they were civil partners.
