COVID-19 vaccination guidance for Carers

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation published new guidance on 30 December. It recommends that Carers in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or who are the main Carer of an elderly person whose welfare may be at risk if the Carer contracted COVID-19 should be included in the priority 6 group to receive the vaccine. Individuals aged over 65 remain higher up the priority groups list.

If you are not already registered as a Carer with your GP, you should consider doing so.
