Please check the government website www.nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccination for more information on eligibility criteria.
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.
Carers will be invited to have a COVID 19 vaccine as part of priority group 6. If you are a non paid carer, please check with the surgery that the information has been recorded on your medical record.
