Adult carers fall into the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) priority group six. This group is the biggest group to be vaccinated and it will take the NHS several weeks to offer these eligible people the vaccine.
Adult carers who are registered as a carer with their GP, the Department or Work & Pensions, Local Authority or a local carers organisation will be invited to book an appointment for their vaccination over the coming weeks. Please wait to be invited for your vaccine and do not try and call your GP as doing so may prevent a patient getting through who needs urgent care.
New enquiries to register as a carer can be made by speaking to your GP or local authority. Registration is subject to eligibility checks through the statutory carers assessment or assignment of carer’s flag on the GP record, advice is also available from 119.
