What you need to know
The COVID-19 vaccine is our best defence against the virus — used alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands.
Getting vaccinated means protecting yourself, and potentially your family, friends and local community from the virus.
The vaccine has been developed and approved following a number of clinical trials involving thousands of people across the world. It has also undergone mandatory safety tests to ensure it is safe for humans.
It is given in two doses by your local NHS service. For those aged over 40 you need to wait eight weeks between doses and for those 39 and under, you should wait 12 weeks. This is based on updated guidance from the UK’s chief medical officers.
NHS Black Country and West Birmingham CCG has answers to many of the most commonly asked questions on their website.
You can also find the most up to date national guidance on the NHS website.
