Carers next in line for Covid-19 jab in Nottinghamshire

Carers across Nottinghamshire will be among the next invited to have their Covid-19 vaccines.


As part of the rollout of the national vaccination programme, Nottinghamshire County Council will be contacting members of the next priority group, which includes carers.

For the purpose of the vaccination programme, carers are people who are eligible for a carer’s allowance, or those who are the sole or primary carer of an elderly or disabled person who is at increased risk of Covid-19 mortality which makes them clinically vulnerable.

This will help support carers to protect those they care for as well as themselves.

The Welsh Government says it is waiting on guidance as to whether people with learning disabilities and unpaid carers can be put into a Covid vaccine priority group.

Health Minister Vaughan Gething said he would hopefully receive the guidance needed to make that decision "in the next day or two."

If the plan is to go ahead it would mean that people with learning disabilities and unpaid carers would be placed in priority group six for the coronavirus vaccine.

Unpaid carers are to be included in the next phase of the rollout of COVID-19 vaccinations, as an Eden register is set to be developed.

Penrith hospital’s vaccination site will offer jabs and North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group is working with Cumbria County Council, Public Health England and carers’ organisations to develop a register of local carers.
