If you have had your vaccination

It takes time for your body to build protection after any vaccination. It is important to continue to follow all safety guidelines to help stop this pandemic. We do not yet know whether the Covid-19 vaccination will stop you from catching and passing on the virus.

You must still:

  • stay at home
  • meet only the people you live with
  • work from home if you can
  • wear a face covering where required
  • wash your hands regularly
  • stay 2 metres from anyone you do not live with
