Vaccination for myself as an unpaid worker for my mum - Carers UK Forum

Vaccination for myself as an unpaid worker for my mum

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi
I'm new to this. I am a teaching assistant in a primary school. I will be going back to work in 10 days in a room of 30 households. I'm 49 so not vaccinated. I care for my my mum, who is 73, daily due to a recent fall, she has had a metal plate implanted into her leg so cannot walk. She also suffers with COPD. I daily go to hers to do household chores and do shopping and take her to appointments. She has had a letter saying she is clinically vulnerable. I am worried that returning to work will put her at risk. She has had her first jab but still feel uneasy about this. Has anybody been in the same position as I have searched the web and find no way of getting vaccinated. Does anybody know if vaccinations are available for someone in my position ? Thankyou

About unpaid carers being in phase 6?

And did you look at the coronavirus section of the forum https://www.carersuk.org/forum/44/carer ... 0?start=70

There is plenty of info there and tips from others.
