Covid vaccination for carers. Unpaid carers have begun to be called forward for their first jab of the Covid vaccine.
Anyone in Worcestershire already identified as a carer in their GP records, or in receipt of Carer's Allowance, or those already known to be carers will be automatically invited for a vaccination in the next few weeks. All carers currently on Worcestershire Association of Carers register will be contacted by the Worcestershire County Council offering a priority booking for a Covid-19 vaccination.
However, with an estimated 63,000+ carers in Worcestershire, there are still many people at risk of missing out because their carer status is unknown to services. If you are a carer, please complete the short form HERE to ensure you are offered the priority Covid vaccination.
The quarterly Worcestershire Association of Carers magazines "The magazine for the county’s Carers" are available to download from their website.
