Vaccine Update

There is no longer any concern about having a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine if you have a history of allergies except in very exceptional circumstances.  When the covid vaccinations were first rolled out a year ago, the approach was very conservative and we had supplies of Astra Zeneca vaccine for those with a history of allergy. 


The current policy is that unless you have a documented case of anaphylaxis due to vaccine, you are deemed safe to have Moderna or Pfizer. 


Locally we do not have any supplies of Astra Zeneca and only have Moderna or Pfizer.  We are aware that 119 have told patients we can provide them with a letter so they can get AZ.  This is not true.  We can only deal with queries from those who have had an anaphylactic response to vaccine (this does not apply to allergies to drugs). 

If you really would like to get an Astra Zeneca vaccine, our best advice is to attend one of the walk in clinics via the website below.  Each walk in clinic states which vaccines they have available.  There is no need to book, just attend. We apologise that we are unable to help you get an Astra Zeneca vaccine at present.
