News Government announces vaccine eligibility Unpaid and family carers aged 16+ are listed as one of the priority groups for an early COVID-19 vaccination. You will automatically be invited for the vaccine if you are registered as a carer at your GP surgery or receive a carers benefit. You will be contacted directly by the NHS when it is your turn to be vaccinated. For anyone unable to attend their vaccination appointments, free transport is available via Dial-a-Ride, a service from SCA Transport from Thursday 18th February 2021. To book, please phone 023 8022 2289 .
