Information about your appointment

  • You will be given a vaccination card at the first appointment, which you must bring to your second appointment.
  • You should not drive for 15mins after the vaccination.
  • Face masks must be worn.
  • Please wear loose clothing so that the clinician can easily access the top of your arm.
  • Side effects – these are similar to the flu vaccination, such as: having a painful, heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you had your injection – this tends to be worst around 1-2 days after the vaccine, feeling tired, headache, general aches, or mild flu like symptoms.
