How is the vaccine given?

The vaccine will be given as an injection in the upper arm. The vaccine will be given in two doses. COVID-19 vaccination offers good protection from three to four weeks after the first dose. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation recommends a gap of eight to twelve weeks between the first two doses. It is important to get both recommended doses to protect yourself against COVID-19.

At your vaccination appointment, strict infection prevention and control measures will be in place.
