Coronavirus vaccine in Scotland – what unpaid carers need to know

This is the current Scottish Government guidance for unpaid carers in Scotland on accessing the Coronavirus vaccine.

Scotland continues to follow the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advice on prioritisation – to protect those most at risk of infection.

Unpaid carers, who continue to be prioritised as part of group 6, will be called forward as soon as vaccine supplies allow, both through letters to those on relevant benefits, and through a national marketing campaign signposting them to the forthcoming self-referral portal. 

Letters should have begun arriving for those carers as of 22 February 2021.
