Flu and COVID vaccinations for carers

Getting your flu and COVID vaccines are two of the most important things you can do to keep yourself, the person you care for, and others around you safe this winter. Try and get vaccinated as soon as you can.

If you are an unpaid carer for a family member or close friend, you are entitled to free COVID-19 and flu vaccinations this autumn. 

Ask at your GP practice for both these vaccinations, or you can book them through the NHS App, on the national booking website at or by calling 119.

What to take to your vaccination appointment

The Carers in Hertfordshire website has information about how to get your vaccinations and what to bring with you to prove your eligibility
