Vaccine safety

Any coronavirus vaccine that is approved must go through all the clinical trials and safety checks all other licensed medicines go through. The UK has some of the highest safety standards in the world.

Vaccines will only be used if they are approved by the MHRA. The MHRA has been monitoring every stage of coronavirus vaccine development.

So far, thousands of people have been given a coronavirus vaccine and no serious side effects or complications have been reported.

Who will get the vaccine?

At first, the vaccine is being offered to people who are most at risk from coronavirus, before being offered more widely.

At Milton Keynes University Hospital, we are currently vaccinating:

  • local people aged 75 and over
  • local care home workers
  • local NHS staff who have been assessed as being at the highest risk of serious illness from COVID-19.

The final decision on who gets the vaccine first was made by the government following 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

You will be contacted when it’s your turn.
