  • Ask your employer to contact the Adult Social Care Team by email at [email protected] to request an appointment on your behalf
  • You will then receive a link through which you can book your vaccine appointment

Who can get the vaccine?

Social care staff currently able to receive the vaccine include:

  • Those working in long-stay residential and nursing care homes or other long-stay facilities
  • Social care staff directly involved in the care of their patients or clients
  • Others involved directly in delivering social care such that they and vulnerable patients are at increased risk of exposure
