In order to use the discount, you have to physically go into the shop as it cannot be used online.
If you haven't got a Blue Light Card yet, you can register online and it costs £4.99 for two years.
However, it's important to bear in mind that it can't be used on a number of products in Morrisons, including Tobacco, fuel, spirits (England), booze in general (Scotland and Wales), and stamps.
It will, though, give you access to the early-bird shopping hour on a Saturday between 6am and 7am, which has until now been dedicated to NHS staff.
It comes after the chain already offered 10 percent off to teaching staff earlier this month.
Since Monday (2 November) teachers, teaching assistants, catering staff, dinner ladies, caretakers, cleaners and school office staff have been able to claim the discount on groceries at stores across the UK.
All they have to do is present their school photo ID card at the till at any of Mozzas' 498 stores, with the discount lasting 'until after Christmas'.
David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, said: "Teachers and school staff are facing many challenges and the education of our children has never been more important.
"This discount is our way of saying thank you as they continue to care for and educate our kids."
They joined NHS staff who have enjoyed the discount since March of this year following the coronavirus outbreak.
The folks over at Morrisons sprang into action at the start of the pandemic to help keep the supply of food coming despite increased pressure.
And in March, the supermarket even donated £10 million worth of groceries to food banks to help them meet high demand.
Staff on its bakery, as well as its fruit and veg teams, put in extra hours to make sure the deliveries were ready on time.
Extra tinned goods and pastas were also sent out to shops before being taken to local food banks.
