Covid-19 Vaccinations for unpaid carers

You have been invited to register for a Covid-19 vaccination because you have been identified as a carer.

A carer is anyone who cares, unwaged for a friend or family member, loved one, who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

We want to ensure that you and the person you care for has every opportunity to protect yourself from infection.

If you are not caring for an adult or child, please do not register, the NHS vaccination programme will invite you in the near future.

There are some general exclusions to the vaccination programme:

Individuals who:

  • are under 16 years of age 
  • have had a previous systemic allergic reaction (including immediate onset anaphylaxis) to a previous dose of Covid-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca or to any component of the vaccine or residues from the manufacturing process
  • are pregnant
  • are suffering from acute severe febrile (fever) illness  
  • are participating in a clinical trial of COVID-19 vaccines
  • have received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine in the preceding 28 days
  • have completed a course of COVID-19 vaccination

If any of the above applies, please contact your GP for further advice.

How this works

If you are happy to be vaccinated:

  1. Please complete the webform below. Please check the details you have provided carefully before you submit the form
  2. You will be contacted by the NHS booking team via text or letter to arrange your appointment

The Covid-19 vaccine

  • is a simple, safe, and effective way of protecting people against COVID-19 before they come into actual contact with the virus
  • adds an additional level of protection against Covid 19 that enhances the hands, face, space and PPE measures
  • uses a person’s natural defences to build resistance to COVID-19 and help make their immune system stronger by creating antibodies
  • does not give you COVID-19
  • provides protection against new variants
  • reduces the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease and may reduce the impact of the disease if you do contract the virus
  • the first dose of the vaccine should give you good protection but you need to have the two doses of the vaccine to give you longer-lasting protection

Important

There is a chance you might still get or spread coronavirus even if you have the vaccine. It is important that you continue to follow the guidance and regulations after vaccination.

Further information on the Covid-19 vaccine is available here.

All of the information you provide on this form will be handled in a confidential manner and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018. To enable the rollout of the Vaccine programme your information will be securely submitted to NHS Organisations after which Salford CVS will delete your personal data within one calendar month.
