Protect yourself and your family
Getting vaccinated means protecting yourself and may also help to protect your family, friends and patients from the virus.
Continue to wash hands, cover face, and make space
The COVID-19 vaccine is our best defence against the virus used alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask, and washing your hands.
A clinically approved vaccination
The vaccine has been developed and approved following several clinical trials involving thousands of people across the world.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) decide the order in which people should be vaccinated. You can find out which groups are currently eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine here.
How the vaccine is given
The vaccine is given by injection into the arm or shoulder. You will be asked which arm you wish to have it in – we recommend if you are right-handed to have it in your left arm and vice versa.
You will need two doses and a booster dose of the vaccine to gain the maximum protection. The first two doses will be given 8 weeks apart therefore you will need to attend two appointments to receive both doses. If you do not have both doses the vaccine will not be fully effective. A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, who have had 2 doses of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
