Priority for family carers at Vaccination centres

On Friday the government announced steps to ensure that unpaid carers can use a specific letter to identify themselves to gain priority for the booster jabs for COVID-19 along with paid care workers, if there are long queues.  

You can find the letter here: http://www.essexcarersnetwork.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/priority-booster-letter-for-carers.pdf. We have highlighted the section you need to bring to the attention of the vaccination team. Hopefully this will mean family carers wont have to spend significant time queueing when they are needed at home to care for their loved one.
