Young Carers Vaccination Support (16-17-year-olds)

Do you look after someone who relies on your help?

Would you like to have your COVID vaccination but have difficulty leaving those you care for?

You can get help to organise your vaccination through the Devon Vaccine Support Team.

The Devon Vaccine Support Team can offer help including arranging your vaccination at a time to suit you, fast-tracking your appointment to get you home more quickly or arranging transportation.

To find out more email d-ccg.devonvaccinationsupport@nhs.net or call 01752 398836.
