Do you have any questions about the Covid19 vaccine?

You can find answers on the NHS website here:

JCVI statement on use of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine: 7 April 2021: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/use-of-the-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine-jcvi-statement/jcvi-statement-on-use-of-the-astrazeneca-covid-19-vaccine-7-april-2021

The above statement underlines new regulations regarding the AstraZeneca vaccine and the administration of the first dose.

The AstraZeneca vaccine is approved for use, there are no reports of the extremely rare thrombosis/thrombocytopenia events following receipt of the second dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Patients are being encouraged to receive their second dose if they did not experience any problems with their first. The second dose will be important for longer lasting protection against COVID-19.
