Covid-19 Vaccination Carers Standard Operating Procedure (Department of Health & Social Care and partners)

Guidance for Covid-19 vaccine deployment programme: unpaid carers (JCVI priority cohort 6). 

This standard operating procedure (SOP) has been developed to support the consistent approach to the offer of COVID-19 vaccination to unpaid carers within priority cohort 6.

This includes:

  • identification of eligible unpaid carers to be invited for vaccination
  • roles and responsibilities within local and national systems
  • how vaccination services should work to deliver COVID-19 vaccination to unpaid carers.

Carers under 16 are not included and those aged 16-18 need to access their vaccination through their GP surgery.
