Adults with Down Syndrome should now all have been offered the opportunity for vaccination as part of priority group 4.
Young People aged 16-18 with Down Syndrome sit in Priority group 6 (All individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality) and should soon be offered a vaccination.
Unpaid family carers also sit in Priority group 6 (one carer per child)- you just need to make sure you are coded as a carer with your GP. Give them a call to check, and then they should then contact you to book for the vaccine. Alternatively, if you recieve carer's allowance you can book online via this link.
