Coronavirus: COVID-19 vaccine for unpaid carers

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

25 February, 2021 — By Camden Council

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

If you are the main carer for a family member, partner or friend whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill, you may now be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is in line with the Government’s priority list for vaccination, which has now moved to include unpaid carers (sometimes called ‘informal’ carers) who are adults and young carers age 17 and 18 (priority group 6).

Please make sure you are registered with a GP as an unpaid/informal carer so they can contact you about this. For support in your caring role, visit camden.gov.uk/carersupport

Anyone aged 64 or over, or clinically extremely vulnerable, can book their own appointment at a local vaccination centre by calling 119 for free or visiting nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccine

Please continue to follow all public health advice, whether or not you have been vaccinated.
