Department of health withdraw online vaccine booking for carers

It has been confirmed that online booking for carers to receive their vaccine has been withdrawn.

This follows a decision by the department to offer anyone claiming to be a carer to book an appointment at one of the regional vaccine centres, without the need to provide proof.

This decision has now been reversed with Patricia Donnelly, Head of the Covid-19 Vaccine Programme, saying that, “any abuse is in the minority” and that going forward appointments for carers will be co-ordinated via the Trust carer co-ordinators and other caring organisations instead.

However, if you have already booked a slot these will not be affected.
