The JCVI define carers who qualify for a COVID-19 vaccine as: ‘’Those who are eligible for a carer’s allowance or those who are the sole or primary carer of an elderly or disabled person who is at increased risk of COVID-19 mortality and therefore clinically vulnerable.’’

Those clinically vulnerable to COVID include children with severe neuro-disabilities, those who are designated Clinically Extremely Vulnerable, adults who have underlying health conditions and those who need care because of advanced age.

If you are a non paid carer, please check with the surgery that the information has been recorded on your medical record. This can be done by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or using our econsult form.
