Are you providing support to a family member or friend, who could not manage without your support due to age, illness, disability or substance misuse?

Are you worried about what will happen to them if you catch the virus and aren’t able to care for them?

North Tyneside GP Practices and North Tyneside Council are working together with North Tyneside Carers’ Centre to make sure carers get access to the vaccine.

You may not think of yourself as a carer as you see yourself as a husband, wife, son, daughter, relative or friend of someone who needs your help, however, you can still be included as a priority for the Covid vaccination.

If you are aged 16 – 64 years and want to be included as a priority for the vaccination, you must register with North Tyneside Carers’ Centre at www.northtynesidecarers.org.uk or by telephoning 0191 643 2298 between 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday.
