Unpaid carers are now on the vaccination list (Group 6). It is advised that every parent carer should get in touch with their GP to ensure they are registered as their childs official carer. This will ensure you are included in the government’s priority group 6 (unpaid carers) and are offered the vaccine once it becomes available for that priority group.
