How the vaccine is administered

The vaccine is given as an injection into your upper arm. You will receive two doses. People aged 18 or over should have their second dose from 8 weeks after their first dose. The booster jab will be given three months after your second dose. Most people aged 12 and over should have their second dose from 12 weeks after their first dose.

You can find out more about the vaccine on the NHS website.

After vaccination

You might still catch or spread coronavirus after your vaccine.

After the first dose, it can take a week or two to build up some protection from the virus, and people who have had the vaccine may still transmit COVID-19.

  • Consider wearing a face covering, especially in crowded or indoor spaces
  • Let fresh air indoors when possible
  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly

This is very important if you are caring for or seeing someone who is clinically vulnerable.

Vaccine fraud

The COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge.

  • If you are contacted by anyone claiming to be from the NHS who asks for payment or a fee - or who gives you a link to a website to take payment for the vaccine - it is a scam.
  • No-one from the NHS will knock on your door unannounced.
  • You will not receive emails inviting you to click on links. If anyone approaches you in this way, or attempts to force or coerce you into handing over funds, contact Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visit www.actionfraud.police.uk
