Primary care are being asked to identify and share with the vaccination services their lists of patients in cohort 6 which include
1. Younger adults in long stay in-patient, nursing and residential care settings
2. Adult carers - those who are eligible for a carers allowance and / or those who are the sole or primary carer of a elderly or disabled person who is at increased risk of Covid19 mortality and therefore clinically vulnerable. Identifying carers relies on accurate GP coding, please flag unpaid carers that meet the above definition to ensure they are invited for vaccination.
3. Adults aged 16 to 65 yrs in an at risk group (based on their medical history)
The full details of the eligible health conditions in Cohort 6 are in the Green Book which can be found here
