Family and other unpaid carers will be in next phase of COVID-19 vaccinations
As of today (Monday 15th February) family and other unpaid carers will be included in the next phase of the roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, and will begin to be called forward for their first jab.
Family carers are in cohort 6 of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s (JCVI) priority list for the vaccination. The JCVI recognised that where the main carer for an older or disabled person falls ill with COVID-19, the welfare of the person they care for would be at serious risk.
Brent Carers Centre is the leading independent unpaid carer support charity in Brent. Providing support to those who care (including family carers) is a vital part of the service we offer.
