Public Health England Leaflet 1 - COVID-19 vaccination: why you are being asked to wait

Produced by Public Health England, a number of COVID-19 informational leaflets have been made available in a range of different languages.


Leaflet 1. COVID-19 vaccination: why you are being asked to wait

(This leaflet is to help healthcare professionals answer questions on the eligibility and availability of the COVID-19 vaccine).


People most at risk from the complications of COVID-19 are being offered the vaccine first.


In the UK, there are 2 approved COVID-19 vaccines. They both require 2 doses to provide longer-lasting protection. Both have been shown to be effective in clinical trials and have a good safety record.


An independent group of experts has recommended that the NHS first offers these vaccines to those at highest risk of catching the disease and of suffering serious complications or dying from COVID-19. This includes older adults in care homes and frontline health and social care workers.


When more vaccine becomes available, the vaccines will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible.


Please click on the link below to see the leaflet in full. The leaflet is available in the following languages: English, Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Farsi, Gujarati, Hindi, Kurdish, Nepali, Punjabi, Polish, Romanian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Turkish and Urdu.
