Vaccine priority for people with learning disabilities

Vaccine

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised the Government and the NHS to invite more people with learning disabilities to receive COVID-19 vaccines. Adults with severe and profound learning disabilities in England and those with learning disabilities in long-stay nursing and residential care settings, should be offered the vaccine in priority group 6. All GP practises in England will contact all adults with a severe disability to be offered the COVID-19 vaccine. Adults with less severe learning disabilities are not currently prioritised. For further details please visit the government website.
