The local NHS plans to vaccinate all adults (aged 16 and over) with a learning disability and their Carers by the end of February.
Our surgery is contacting people with learning disabilities and/or their Carers on their behalf, to arrange an appointment to have their first COVID-19 vaccine. If you have not been contacted and believe you should be registered with us as having a learning disability, please contact the practice to discuss this.
Family Carers of adults with a learning disability are also eligible for a vaccine. This can be arranged at the same time as booking the appointment for the person with learning disabilities.
There is more information on vaccinations for people with learning disabilities and their Carers on this NHS website: https://www.healthierfuture.org.uk/covid/coronavirus-information-for-people-with-learning-disabilities
