Here’s our latest update around direct payments and Covid Vaccinations.
Please note this is subject to change and we advise you check the latest update via the Government website
Personal Assistants – staff who are employed by people who receive a Direct Payment – are eligible for the vaccine programme and have been identified by the government as a priority group of frontline social care workers.
The Lancashire county council is now directly contacting people who receive a Direct Payment to identify their PA’s for vaccination and ensure that they are included in the programme. We will ask for relevant information to enable the vaccination of Personal Assistants as necessary and in line with government guidance.
If you receive a Direct Payment from Lancashire County Council and wish to arrange for the vaccination of your staff, please wait to be contacted by the county council.
