Useful tips on the Covid-19 vaccine for people with dementia
The national COVID-19 vaccination is now being offered as a priority to individuals who are at highest risk of catching the infection and of suffering serious complications. This includes people living with dementia and those who have certain conditions that increase their risk of becoming seriously ill.
The vaccine is not compulsory but is highly recommended. If someone you care for has been offered the vaccine and they or their family are unsure about having it, recommend they seek advice from their GP or nearest health care professional and look at trusted sources. Dementia UK has also compiled some useful information and guidance for family and friends including frequently asked questions.
