If you have your 1st dose through your GP surgery, you’ll be contacted when it’s time to book your 2nd dose.
Some people at high risk from COVID-19 can get earlier appointments for their 2nd dose (at 8 weeks instead of 12 weeks). Wait to be contacted if you think you’re in this group and you’ve already booked your 2nd dose at 12 weeks.
The same vaccine should be used for both doses.
The first dose of both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine offer good levels of protection, but to get maximum protection from COVID-19, everyone will need to get a second dose.
Please do ensure you attend your second dose vaccination appointment and continue to follow social distancing guidance and wear a face covering when you come for your jab.
