Carers and Covid-19 vaccination priority

Last changed: Monday 11 January, 2021

At the end of last year the government updated the priority list for receiving a Covid-19 vaccination. In brief this advice recommends that carers who are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or are the main carer of  an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer contracted COVID should be included in Priority 6 alongside people with underlying  conditions. For full details see this article on the Carers UK website.
