How safe is the COVID-19 vaccine?

The vaccines meet the strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The MHRA follows international standards of safety and approved vaccines must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks that all other licensed medicines go through.

Other vaccines are being developed. They will only be available on the NHS once they have been thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe and effective.

Who shouldn’t have the vaccine?

The vaccine is safe for most people, but you are advised to not book the vaccine if you:

  • Received a flu vaccination in the last seven days
  • Currently have a fever
  • Have a history of an allergic reaction to the ingredients of the vaccines
  • Tested positive for Covid-19 in the last four weeks
