consent form

The Covid 19 Vaccination Consent Form (Over 70s)

The COVID-19 vaccination will reduce the likelihood of being affected with COVID-19 disease. Like all drugs, no immunisation is 100% effective.  It will also take a few weeks for the body to mount a protective response  from the vaccine. You may still get COVID-19 despite the vaccination, but this should lessen the severity of any infection.

The vaccine will not give you COVID-19 infection, and two doses will reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill. You will still need to follow the public health guidance for the foreseeable future, most importantly soon after vaccination (before the body is fully protected), including wearing the correct personal protection equipment ( e.g masks as needed) and social distancing

You will receive either Comirnaty ( Pfizer/Biontech) or Covid 19 Moderna vaccine. Both of these are mRNA vaccines and have been chosen as they provide well over 90% efficacy in trials. This is because the over 70s are at higher risk and so will hopefully provide greater protection to this population .  The schedule will be for 2 vaccinations

Common side effects may include pain and swelling at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle and joint pain, chills and fever. Please inform  if you have ever had anaphylaxis.
