When can I have the Covid vaccine?


Update 25th February 2021

Unpaid carers over 16 are now being vaccinated in Group 6. See the full priority list here on page 8.

Carers in receipt of Carers Allowance in England can also book an appointment via the NHS vaccine booking page.

Unpaid carer status so far has been based on the carer being in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or being registered as a carer with the GP but you are still entitled to it, even if you don’t get Carer’s Allowance.

The organisation Contact has produced a template letter to help carers struggling to get the COVID vaccine | Contact
