Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Social Care vaccination

We are currently working to ensure that the COVID vaccination is rolled out in accordance with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) nationally identified priorities.

Working from that we are currently engaged in identifying staff who fall under the definition of social care workers for cohort 2.  This is a narrower definition than that of a key or essential worker:

All frontline social care workers directly working with people clinically vulnerable to COVID-19 who need care and support.

We have been going through the process of identifying and reaching out to potential providers across the sector. If you have not yet been contacted and you believe there are staff in your organisation that fit the criteria above please email vaccinations@cumbria.gov.uk with the following information.

  • Name of Organisation: XYZCare
  • Type of Organisation: Domiciliary Care
  • Contact Name: Joe Bloggs
  • Email: Joe.Bloggs@care.co.uk
  • Number of eligible staff: Carlisle 13, South Lakes 12

Please note that vaccination staff will be checking eligibility when delivering vaccines and individuals may be turned away if they do not meet the criteria.
