Information for people with a learning disability and their carers

If you're registered on your GP’s Learning Disability Register, you can get the COVID-19 booster jab this autumn. Book your booster through the NHS website or call 119 for free. Your GP might also call you to schedule an appointment. If you can't go to the vaccination site or you need special help, tell your GP so adjustments can be made to support you.
