The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.

Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals, some pharmacies and hundreds of local vaccination centres run by GPs.

It’s being given to:

  • some people aged 80 and over who already have a hospital appointment in the next few weeks
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • health and social care workers at high risk

You will also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not have one.

The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible.

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

Read the latest JCVI advice on priority groups for the COVID-19 vaccination on GOV.UK

for more information about the vaccine priority list click here.

Wait to be contacted

The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. It’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.

Advice if you’re of childbearing age, pregnant or breastfeeding

There’s no evidence the COVID-19 vaccine is unsafe if you’re pregnant. But more evidence is needed before you can be routinely offered the vaccine.

The JCVI has updated its advice to recommend you may be able to have the vaccine if you’re pregnant and:

  • at high risk of getting coronavirus because of where you work
  • have a health condition that means you’re at high risk of serious complications of coronavirus

You can have the COVID-19 vaccine if you’re breastfeeding.

Speak to a healthcare professional before you have the vaccination. They will discuss the benefits and risks of the COVID-19 vaccine with you.

You do not need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination. The vaccine cannot give you or your baby COVID-19.

Read the latest COVID-19 vaccine advice if you’re pregnant, may get pregnant or are breastfeeding on GOV.UK

 

How the COVID-19 vaccine is given

The COVID-19 vaccine is given as an injection into your upper arm.

It’s given as 2 doses. You will have the 2nd dose 3 to 12 weeks after having the 1st dose.

How safe is the COVID-19 vaccine?

The vaccines approved for use in the UK have been developed by Pfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca.

They have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Any coronavirus vaccine that is approved must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks all other licensed medicines go through. The MHRA follows international standards of safety.

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.

So far, thousands of people have been given a COVID-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. No long-term complications have been reported.

Read about the approved Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for COVID-19 by MHRA on GOV.UK

Read about the approved Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 by MHRA on GOV.UK

How effective is the COVID-19 vaccine?

The 1st dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should give you good protection from coronavirus. But you need to have the 2 doses of the vaccine to give you longer lasting protection.

There is a chance you might still get or spread coronavirus even if you have the vaccine.

This means it is important to:

  • continue to follow social distancing guidance
  • if you can, wear something that covers your nose and mouth in places where it’s hard to stay away from other people

Information:

Read more about why vaccines are safe and important, including how they work and what they contain.

COVID-19 vaccine side effects

Most side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine are mild and should not last longer than a week, such as:

  • a sore arm where the needle went in
  • feeling tired
  • a headache
  • feeling achy
  • feeling or being sick

You can take painkillers, such as paracetamol, if you need to.

If you have a high temperature you may have coronavirus or another infection.

If your symptoms get worse or you are worried, call 111.

Allergic reactions

Tell healthcare staff before you are vaccinated if you’ve ever had a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis).

You should not have the vaccine if you’ve ever had a serious allergic reaction to:

  • a previous vaccine
  • a previous dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine
  • some medicines, household products or cosmetics

Serious allergic reactions are rare. If you do have a reaction to the vaccine, it usually happens in minutes. Staff giving the vaccine are trained to deal with allergic reactions and treat them immediately.

 

Information:

You can report any suspected side effect using the Coronavirus Yellow Card safety scheme.

Visit the Coronavirus Yellow Card to report a vaccine side effect

COVID-19 vaccine ingredients

The 2 approved COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any animal products or egg.

BeYou Project

The BeYou Project supports LGBT+ young people in Kent (and is part of the charity Porchlight). We were hoping you can help us spread an important message about new support that’s available to young people throughout lockdown and beyond. 

For some young people they support, being LGBT+ can conflict with their cultural background. Because of this, we’re now running virtual meet-ups for LGBT+ young people from faith backgrounds, LGBT+ young people from BAME backgrounds, and under-12s and their families. 

You can find out more about the groups here: https://www.porchlight.org.uk/news/more-support-for-lgbt-young-people-in-kent

Mid Kent Mind Re-Introduce Mind The Knife Programme

Mid Kent Mind are excited to be re-introducing a programme which we ran with great success in a face-to-face format before the pandemic begun.  
 
This programme is known as ‘Mind The Knife’ and is designed to explore how young people who have not had the opportunity to develop their emotional resilience may be drawn into crime and other illicit activities. 
 
This programme is aimed as an early intervention to help young people forward plan for the future – equipping them with the tools and the knowledge to ensure that they can craft the future which they want for themselves in a positive and proactive way, and avoid the negative influences which may have otherwise seemed appealing to them. By boosting young people’s self-esteem and their confidence, we aim to equip them with the capabilities to make the best decisions for themselves. 
 
For more details on the Mind The Knife Programme, and to find out how to refer a young person onto the programme, please click here.

Urgent appeal for assistants to staff symptom-free Covid-19 testing centres across Kent.

From the Kent Messenger: A recruitment drive is under way for urgently needed staff to assist at symptom-free Covid-19 test centres.

Assistants are being sought by Kent Council Council (KCC) to help administer testing at 24 locations across Kent which are open daily from 9am to 7pm.

A symptom-free Covid-19 testing site at Kemsley Village Hall near Sittingbourne
A symptom-free Covid-19 testing site at Kemsley Village Hall near Sittingbourne

The full-time positions are to be filled right away, and the staff earning £10 per hour will be expected to carry out a range of duties, including registering members of the public, ordering supplies and overseeing the swab testing process.

Successful applicants will need to show they have experience of working with members of the public, excellent organisational skills and the ability to communicate clearly and sensitively with people attending the test centres.

KCC is urging everyone without symptoms to get tested every two weeks, especially if you are leaving the house for essential trips such as going to work or food shopping.

It is believed around one in three people with Covid-19 display no symptoms, so it is hoped regular testing will identify those who may have otherwise unknowingly spread the virus to others.

People booking tests should be advised that if possible, they will need a QR code app reader or the NHS app already installed on their mobile phone. Assistance is available at the sites for registration if needed.

Assistants recruited to join the testing effort must be prepared to work on a rota basis, working shifts which will include evenings and may include weekends as required.

Anyone interested in applying should email a CV to AST@connect2kent.co.uk for more information.
