COVID-19: vaccines information and resources

We provide you with the need to know information on the COVID vaccines, what vaccines are in use, the roles of the organisations, prioritisation and links to resources for medical professionals.

Vaccine prioritisation

Prioritising the first dose

The JCVI advised that the delivery of the first vaccine dose to as many eligible individuals as possible should be initially prioritised over delivery of a second dose.

They stated that the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine may be given between three to 12 weeks following the first dose. The second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine may be given between four to 12 weeks following the first dose. You can read more about the evidence to support that decision from PHE.
