Carers in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, along with the people they look after, are being reminded to arrange their Covid-19 vaccination.

The call to book a vaccination appointment coincides with Carers Week 2022, which celebrates the invaluable work being carried out by paid and unpaid carers up and down the country.

At the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, many carers, along with those being looked after, had to remain extra vigilant during the numerous periods of national lockdown to ensure they avoid Covid-19.

With the coronavirus vaccine easily-accessible protection against Covid-19, those who have yet to come forward are advised to proactively book their appointment without delay, especially as invitations are no longer being sent.

A full list of walk-in vaccination sites, which can be listed in order of distance from a person’s home or place of work, can be found online at

More local venues, such as community pharmacies and GP practices, are providing a vaccination service, meaning more people should be able to get protected closer to home, and these sites are also listed on the NHS website.
