COVID-19 and Flu Vaccinations for Carers

Do you care for a loved one who is vulnerable to Covid-19 or Flu?  Would the person you care for be at risk if you were unwell?  If so, and you are aged over 16, you are eligible for free seasonal flu and Autumn booster Covid-19 vaccinations.

As a carer, whether paid or unpaid, you’re more likely to be exposed to the flu and Covid-19 viruses.

If you care for someone who may be at greater risk, it’s easy to pass these viruses on without knowing.

For anyone struggling locally to book an appointment or find a vaccination centre close to them, help and support is available through The Devon Vaccine Support Team. To find out more email the Devon Vaccine Support Team or call 01752 398836.
