Coronavirous: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL13655, tabled on 24 February 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what are the underlying health conditions which would make it unsafe for a person to have any of the currently approved COVID-19 vaccinations; and how many people have these conditions.

Each vaccine has specific contraindications which will outline those in whom the vaccine could potentially be considered unsafe. To date this has only been those with known hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients listed in the individual vaccine information. Administration of a vaccine for anyone with any other underlying health condition should be on an individual basis and following discussion between the subject and their physician, with consideration for their individual risk-benefit.
