If you are not sure about having a COVID vaccine, we strongly recommend that you read the evidence and information at the links given below. Vaccines are a way for a community to look after one another, in the same way that the flu jab does each year. The uptake in the UK so far has been over 90% in all groups and the benefits are seen in reduced hospitalisations and deaths.
Below, we list a range of questions and corresponding information resources:
- Is the COVID vaccine safe?
- Vaccinations and blood clots
- All about the vaccine, research and priority list (NHS)
- Statement from the Society for Endocrinology about the vaccine and endocrine conditions
- Why vaccination is safe and important
- When can I expect to receive my vaccination?
- Side effects – are they worse with one or other vaccine?
- What to expect after the vaccination
Vaccination programme (more details can also be found here):
If you haven’t yet booked your vaccinations, we would encourage you to do so as soon as possible as this will help us to protect one another going forwards. Remaining unvaccinated means that you may be restricted as to the places you can travel to.
