Time for unpaid carers to be seen to in vaccination programme
People aged 16 to 64 in Lanarkshire who provide vital face-to-face care and support for others, and have not already had their first vaccine dose or appointment letter, are being invited to register for their COVID-19 vaccination.
A self-registration service has been launched this week to enable people aged 16 and over to check their eligibility and register, online or over the phone if unable to get online, for the vaccine as an unpaid carer.
Those seeking more information are being invited to register via www.nhsinform.scot/carersregister or by calling the Covid Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.
Paid carers have already been contacted – and this is a means of ensuring that all carers are covered.
