The charity is also in contact with a separate group of carers through their Carer and Family Support Service to make the same enquiries. Information has been passed on to Carers about the recent change in in guidelines that has prioritised carers for the vaccine. For clients unable to leave the house, support is being provided by contacting GPs to find out how and when their vaccine will be administered.
