You must not receive this vaccine if you have previously had an allergy to this vaccine or any of its components, in particular polyethylene glycol. If you have had any other previous vaccine reactions or anaphylaxis you will still be able to have the ChAdOx-1S vaccine. Please make an appointment to see your regular doctor if you have any concerns or questions about this.

When you arrive for your vaccination appointment you will need to show evidence of your eligibility to receive the vaccine in Phase 1b. If you are a regular patient of our practice and are over 70 or have an eligible medical condition you will not need to supply any further evidence.
You will also need to bring your completed consent form. If you booked your appointment online you will not need to bring a paper consent form with you, as this will have been completed electronically during the booking process. If you do not have a completed consent form you will be asked to rebook your appointment.
