Types of vaccine
In the UK and Jersey, there are two types of COVID-19 vaccine that are currently being used:
- Pfizer BioNtech vaccine
- AstraZeneca (Oxford) vaccine
Both require two doses to provide the best protection. Both have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.
We have limited supplies of the vaccine and so you'll be offered the vaccine that is available. You'll be advised of the vaccine at your appointment.

Second dose of vaccine
It's important to have both doses of the vaccine to give you the best protection. After you attend for your first dose you'll be given a second appointment. You must plan to attend your second appointment.
You'll receive a record card, text or email confirmation of when your next dose is due. This will be 10 to 12 weeks after your first dose of the vaccine.

If you feel unwell
If you're unwell, it's better to wait until you have recovered to have your vaccine, but you should have it as soon as possible. If you have COVID-19 you can have the vaccine 4 weeks following a positive test. You should not attend a vaccine appointment if you're:
- waiting for a COVID-19 test
- unsure if you're fit and well
