Unpaid Carers Urged to get Vital Covid-19 Vaccination

 

Carers Count, along with Kirklees Council and NHS Kirklees CCG, are urging people who provide care and support for others to come forward for your vaccination. We’re concerned that there are some people who are eligible to get a vaccine who have not yet received one.

Please get in touch with us to register for a vaccination by calling 0300 012 0231 or emailing vaccinations@CarersCount.org.uk.

One of our carers, Robert Burns, said: "I’ve been caring for my dad who is housebound for a few years, looking after his personal care. I never realised I was a carer, so was very grateful to Carers Count for helping me to get a vaccine so I could continue with my role without the extra worry of catching the virus and becoming very ill. Thank you to all who made this happen."

If you are worried about the effect on your health, or about struggling with looking after the person you care for in case you feel any side effects, or if you can’t leave the person you care for to go to an appointment - or there is anything else which is making it difficult for you to get your vaccine, please contact us and we’ll help you with this.

Thank you!

The Carers Count Team
