Advice for unpaid carers

Unpaid carers are now a priority group for the vaccination.

If someone else relies on you for regular practical support – like sorting out their shopping, bills or personal care - or for emotional support you could qualify. You’ll need to register with your GP as a carer now or contact the Age UK Carers Hub who can help you.

If you are already registered with your GP as a carer and/or if Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) have confirmed your are eligible for carers allowance, the NHS will be in touch directly to organise your jab.
