COVID-19 vaccines give you the best protection against COVID-19, but for some people injections can be difficult. Please inform our Patient Services Team whilst booking your appointment so that we can make a note of this on our records and accommodate you appropriately.

People unwell and experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should not receive the COVID-19 vaccine until they have recovered. For adults who have had a positive Covid-19 result, you can have the vaccine 28 days after you had a positive test for COVID-19 or 28 days after your symptoms started, so you may need to wait.

Like all medicines, the COVID-19 vaccines can cause side effects, but not everyone gets them. Most side effects are mild and should not last longer than a week, such as:
- a sore arm from the injection
- feeling tired
- a headache
- feeling achy
- feeling or being sick
If you have a high temperature that lasts longer than 2 days, a new continuous cough, loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, symptoms of colds and flu, you may have COVID-19, so you are advised to stay at home.
You cannot catch COVID-19 from the vaccine, but you may have caught it just before or after your vaccination.
