Whether I still need to get my second dose?
The most important focus at the moment is to encourage everyone to complete their course of Covid vaccination. Recent real-world evidence of protection against the delta variant may give confidence to those reluctant to take second doses. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vaccines-highly-effective-against-hospitalisation-from-delta-variant
· Second doses of Vavrexia /Astazeneca Vaccine provide 92% protection against hospitalization from the delta variant
· Second doses of Cominarty Pfizer provide 96% protection against hospitalization from the delta variant
These are comparable with vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization from the Alpha variant. One dose of either vaccine is significantly less effective than 2 doses. So, the message to patients is you need to get the second dose for maximum available protection.
The program for second doses of the AZ vaccine has been accelerated and all will be offered their second dose by the 19th of July.
Whether I could get the mixing of vaccines?
Mixing of vaccine schedules is NOT currently recommended by NIAC and not part of the vaccine program despite the intense media coverage of this option which is confusing for patients.
I am pregnant. To whom should I contact to get the vaccine?
The program of covid vaccination for pregnant women is via maternity services and not general practice.
Let’s fight this together. Keep safe!
