A carer is anyone, a young person or adult, who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
This is the simplest way to receive your C19 Vaccination as a carer, and protect your vulnerable loved ones and friends. If your GP is not offering the vaccine, they have arrangements in place to ensure you receive the vaccine from an alternative site. For more information, and to book an appointment, please visit our local vaccination website.
