COVID-19 vaccinations among people with severe mental illness

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has placed people with severe mental illness (defined in this case as “Individuals with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or any mental illness that causes severe functional impairment”) in priority group 6 to receive the vaccine. Under current plans, this means that people with living with severe mental illness (SMI) should begin receiving the first dose of the vaccine at the end of February.

Rethink created a survey to find out more about how our beneficiaries felt about being in a priority group for the vaccine, if they planned on getting it and what the barriers and enablers were to this. 

Visit the Rethink website to read the full findings of the survey https://www.rethink.org/get-involved/campaign-with-us/resources-and-reports/ensuring-uptake-of-covid-19-vaccinations-among-people-with-severe-mental-illness/
