Carers Priority 6 – Covid Vaccine
Following the publication of new COVID vaccination advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation which recommends that carers who are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance or are the main carer of an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer contracted COVID should be included in Priority 6 alongside people with underlying conditions
Carers Information & Support Service want to ensure that all unpaid carers are registered as carers with their GP and if the above applies are given the priority they are entitled to. If you are not already registered with your GP as a carer or need support in your caring role, please do not hesitate to contact the service on 01482 222220 or alternatively email us email@example.com. We can provide you with a copy of the GP registration form required.
At CISS we support carers and those caring for someone over the age of 18 who reside in the Hull area or are registered with a Hull GP. We also provide support and advice for parent carers of a child with additional needs.
We provide support for all informal carers; whether they are providing support for 1hour per week or 24 hours per day.
We offer advice to any member of the public, health or social professionals who want to gain further knowledge about unpaid care and support available for carers.
