Details on carer access to Covid-19 vaccines

Unpaid and family carers aged 16+ are listed as one of the priority groups for COVID-19 vaccination. You are automatically invited for the vaccine if you are registered as a carer at your GP surgery or receive a carers benefit

Carers who are eligible and haven’t been called forward are being asked to contact their GP practice to be assessed and registered as a carer, and subsequently will be offered a Covid-19 vaccination.

Carers UK has developed a template letter to help carers ask to be registered at their local GP practice.

For more information about how unidentified carers can apply for a vaccination appointment, read Carers UK’s Covid Vaccine FAQs page.
