Reassurance about the use of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca
In the UK, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) regulates medicines, medical devices and blood components for transfusion, including the vaccines being offered as part of this programme.
The MHRA remains clear that there is no evidence to support any concerns about the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
People should continue to attend their appointments and get their COVID-19 vaccine when asked to do so.
Dr Phil Bryan, MHRA Vaccines Safety Lead said:
