GP declaration needed for those who can't consent to Covid booster

Another person cannot sign on someone's behalf

People who can't give informed consent for a Covid-19 booster jab will need a 'best interest' declaration from their GP.

Government is reminding residents, and carers, that consent cannot be given by another person even if they're a close relative.

People are also being told not to try and sign for a relative on the day of vaccination.

If someone needed a best interest declaration from their GP for their first two vaccines they will need one again for the booster.

A reminder will be included with any appointment letters still to be sent out.
