Carers are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine

The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) has now confirmed that unpaid carers in England can register for their COVID-19 vaccine online if they are the primary carer of someone who is clinically vulnerable.

If you've been receiving Carers Allowance or if you've notified your GP that you're a carer, you should automatically be notified about your vaccine by letter.

Otherwise, book via the national booking system: or call 119.
