Covid-19 Vaccination For Carers

Covid-19 Vaccination For Carers

 

Covid-19 vaccinations are now available for unpaid adult carers of clinically vulnerable people

To ensure you are contacted you must be eligible for carers allowance or be registered as a Carer with your GP, the County Council or the Lincolnshire Carers’ Service.

Carers who are known to the County Council, or the Lincolnshire Carers Service (CSC and Carers FIRST) or registered with their GP do not need to do anything – they will be invited to make an appointment for their vaccination.

Carers who are not registered with any of the above (and who also do not receive Carers’ Allowance) but who may be eligible for the vaccine as a priority, can register here.

The Carer Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) was published 8th March – see here for more details.
