Coronavirus: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL12480, tabled on 25 January 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether a patients' consent to have a COVID-19 vaccination followed by another approximately three weeks later is still effective if the second vaccination is delayed.

The process for consent applies to all vaccines, including those against COVID-19. An individual gives consent to receive a full course of treatment rather than consenting to a time frame for when the treatment is to be received. Consent remains valid unless the individual who gave it withdraws it.
