Carers UK have confirmed that unpaid carers have now been included in priority group 6 of the continued Covid-19 vaccine rollout. Some carers may be higher up the list if they are over 65 years of age. The government list of the groups is available here.
In readiness for this it is advised to please let your GP know you are a carer and ensure you have been placed on their Carers Register. You will also receive a free flu jab.
If you are an unpaid carer, please make sure your doctor knows this – as you may get the vaccine earlier than you would have.
