After your vaccination you will be ask to wait in the marquee for 15 minutes for observations.
After the 15 minutes you can exit with your vaccination card, this is your record of the vaccination received and dosage. It will help remind you when to get your second dose. The second dose will between 10 -12 weeks from the first vaccination.
Like all medicines, this vaccine may cause side effects – they are often mild and short term.
Very common side effects include:

These symptoms normally last less than a week. If your symptoms seem to get worse or if you are concerned, call NHS 111.
