Unvaccinated family carers' reimbursement process
Published 20 June 2023
The Government has established a reimbursement process for unvaccinated family carers who were unpaid due to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
In-home family carers of disabled people who were paid to provide support prior to the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 coming into force on 6 November 2021 and who continued to provide that care but were not paid because of the effect of the Vaccinations Order are eligible for reimbursement.
