Covid-19 Vaccinations for Carers

Unpaid carers can now register for vaccination

Vaccinations for Carers

Posted: 16 March 2021 · Practice news

People who provide vital face-to-face care and support for others, and who haven’t already been given an appointment, are now being invited to register for the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

If you are aged 16 or over and provide face-to-face care for family or friends who need extra support, you’re now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Providing face-to-face care can be anything from doing the shopping and preparing meals to giving personal and practical support. If that sounds like you, it’s time to roll up your sleeve.

All eligible carers who haven’t already received their first coronavirus vaccine or a vaccine invitation letter should use the online registration system at: https://register.vacs.nhs.scot/.

If you require assistance to register, you can register via the COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 (select option 3: "Register as an Unpaid Carer").
