The COVID-19 vaccination will reduce the chance of you suffering from COVID-19 disease.  Like all medicines, no vaccine is completely effective and it takes a few weeks for your body to build up protection from the vaccine.  Some people may still get COVID-19 despite having a vaccination, but this should lessen the severity of any infection.

The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19 infection, and two doses will reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill.  You will still need to follow the guidance in public places & work if applicable  Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short-term, and not everyone gets them.
