Covid-19 Vaccinations for Unpaid/Informal Carers

There is now the opportunity for unpaid and informal carers to be vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of the National Vaccination programme. Salford CVS are registering carers on behalf of NHS Salford CCG.

Anyone aged 16+ who cares, unwaged for a friend or family member, is eligible for a vaccination.

Patients will need to register for their vaccination, and then wait to be contacted by the NHS booking team via text, phone or letter to arrange the appointment.

Those who are not an unpaid or informal carer will need to wait to be invited for a vaccination by the NHS.

Action for contractors: Please cascade this information to patients in your pharmacies.
