Excellent news that The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommends that adults living with adults who are immunosuppressed should be prioritised for the COVID-19 vaccine. This will help so many mitigate their risks as things start to open up again.

The Government has now agreed to prioritise adults living with people with blood cancer in England (we are currently seeking confirmation from Scotland, Wales, and N. Ireland).

Thank you Nick for thinking of us out in the regions. I'm sure it will follow and with a 21 year old son living at home this is good news.

This is good news. I am not sure what the word is from Wales. I know registering with the GP as a carer will put you in group 6.
