COVID VACCINATION 2ND DOSE INTERVALS Posted on 27 Sep 2021

This site follows the current national guidance on dosing intervals for second doses which states that second doses must be given at least eight weeks apart.

We are aware that there are mixed messages in the mainstream media about this which is causing some confusion for individuals, however having your second dose at least eight weeks after the first will give you the best possible protection from the delta variant.

The manufacturer recommended dose intervals were based on data at the time of the clinical trials; Public Health England and JCVI now have real world data from the billions of vaccinations given worldwide that show a longer dosing interval between first and second doses offers individuals even more protection.  This is especially important in the context of rising case rates and the delta variant.

Therefore, we won't be giving you your second dose any earlier than eight weeks unless there is a clinical reason to do so.

It is really important for you to have a second dose so that you can get the best possible protection, so please come back at eight weeks.  You can book an appointment in advance through the National Booking System, or come to a walk-in session after eight weeks if that is best for you.
