Unpaid carers are being urged to make sure they are registered with Carers Bucks, so they do not miss out on their invitation to get a COVID vaccination.
Carers fall into Group 6 of the immunisation priority list and are now being invited for their vaccinations. However, some people who are eligible to get a vaccine may not be registered as an unpaid carer. Or, they may not have been previously identified as a carer by their GP surgery. Some people also may not realise they qualify as unpaid carer.
You are eligible to get a vaccination if:
- You are receiving, or are eligible to receive, a carer's allowance.
- You are the sole or primary carer of an elderly or disabled person who is clinically extremely vulnerable. This includes carers of children who are clinically extremely vulnerable, as per the JCVI definitions.
- You are 16 or 17 and are a carer of an elderly or disabled person who is clinically extremely vulnerable
Eligible carers who have been flagged by their GP and those that receive a Carers Allowance, or are eligible to receive it, will be invited for a vaccination. They will get a letter from the NHS asking them to arrange a vaccination through the National Booking System.
However, some unpaid carers in Bucks may not be recognised in these ways. Buckinghamshire Council is working with Carers Bucks to identify any unpaid carers who are not prioritised through the two routes above or are not currently known to either Carers Bucks or the Council. These people will then be sent letters inviting them to arrange a vaccination through the National Booking System.
If you are not already registered as an unpaid carer, please do so here
