COVID-19 Vaccination & Blood Clotting

The UK vaccination programme has been very successful with more than 30 million people vaccinated and more than 6,000 lives already saved.

Recently there have been reports of a very rare condition involving blood clots and unusual bleeding after vaccination. This is being carefully reviewed but the risk factors for this condition are not yet clear.

Although this condition remains extremely rare, there appears to be a higher risk in people who have had the first dose of the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine. Around 4 people develop this condition for every million doses of AZ vaccine doses given.

This is seen slightly more often in younger people and tends to occur between 4 days and 2 weeks following vaccination.

This condition can also occur naturally, and clotting problems are a common complication of COVID-19 infection. An increased risk has not yet been seen after other COVID-19 vaccines but is being carefully monitored.

COVID-19 Vaccination Programme – Second Vaccinations 

We are currently in the process of organising clinics for second vaccinations.  Second doses will be given 11 to 12 weeks (77 to 84 days) following first vaccinations.  We will contact you when it is your turn for your second vaccination.

We appreciate that everyone wants to know when their appointment will be, and we are working as fast as possible to get through our patient lists.  Please bear with us as our team continue to work incredibly hard to deliver the vaccine into our community.
