Please read the following information before continuing to the form
Welcome to Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.
This form is to register your interest in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine as an unpaid carer.
Due to the large numbers of unpaid carers across Wales and the importance of vaccinating those at highest risk, we cannot vaccinate everyone who provides care for a friend or family member. This is not to devalue the significant caring role undertaken by so many, rather it is to maintain the clear focus of the vaccination programme on preventing deaths and protecting our vital health and social care systems.
Many unpaid carers will receive an earlier vaccination depending on their age.
Unpaid carers aged 50 years and over, who are not prioritised for vaccination as an unpaid carer, will be offered the vaccine in priority groups 7-9. Our aim is to offer vaccination to all those in these priority groups by the middle of April 2021.
Young carers under 16 will not be offered the vaccination. No children under 16 are being vaccinated, unless in exceptional circumstances due to severe neuro-disabilities.
Eligibility for prioritisation is not dependant on receipt of carer’s allowance, membership of a carers’ organisation or being known to social services.
