    Covid booster

    Been offered the covid booster but my partner and carer who is 62 hasn't. Can she also have it?

    Dear Stevedp,

    It has just recently been announced that unpaid carers will be offered a covid booster in the autumn. At the moment there is no provision for unpaid carers to have the vaccine unless they qualify under a different category, such as yourself.

    With kind regards

        I tried to get covid booster for my husband as social services are trying to find a care home for him. Told he has to be over 75 and immune deficient. GP surgery has announced covid boosters available October. January we both had our boosters at home. So we wait and see what happens.
        😊
        when i can think of something profound i will update this.

          I qualified for the booster jab (4th) being vulnerable. I booked online a month or so ago and showed one of the letters from the DHSS. My wife (also over70) came with me as my carer. The vaccination centre kindly agreed to give her the booster too.

                AngieCanuck We would suggest you contact NHS 119 to discuss when you can rebook your 4th Covid booster jab if you are in the UK .
