Have you had your vaccination yet or the person you care for? The Carers Centre is strongly promoting that you do, so if you get your call up, make sure you go, any problems let us know and continue to read this blog for information relating to Tower Hamlets vaccination programme.
Unpaid carers under the age of 65 will be prioritised in Group 6 for the COVID-19 vaccine. Carers aged 65 and above will be able to access the vaccine earlier under the initial groupings.
This prioritisation recognises the important role carers play in supporting those they care for and the health and social care system.
Yesterday we had a great group discussion at The Tuesday Social Club about our favourite decade and it was hilarious telling stories about our youth and the antics we got up to. If you like the idea of joining a weekly social peer group that meets to have fun, gossip, sharing advice and taking time out for yourself then please let me know and I will send you an invite for our Zoom sessions.
