How do I get the Covid-19 vaccine, who gives it and how long does it last?


Before Pfizer launched the Covid-19 vaccine, we answered key questions that included how to get a sting, who gave it, and how long it lasted.

You will be contacted and asked to book an appointment using a "call and call back system".

This is possible because central NHS computers have access to the population's personal information – such as name, age, address and telephone number.

The "call" is meant to invite you to make an appointment for the first batch of two necessary doses. The recall applies to the booster 21 days later.

The pushes are made via a needle in the upper arm.

Partial immunity is estimated at 12 days, with full effectiveness seven days after the second dose – (i.e. 28 days after the first burst).

In case of a bad reaction, you will be asked to stay at the vaccination site for 15 minutes after the bite.

The vaccination staff will work on Christmas Day. England's 6,800 general practitioner practices are organized in around 1,000 "networks" and will select a special operation as a vaccination center.

The Pfizer vaccine has been tested on more than 43,000 people in six countries. With no safety concerns, NHS workers and health care volunteers will soon begin administering the sting, which provides six-month Covid-19 immunity

Who will give the push?

Regular NHS staff, newly trained recruits, and volunteers such as the St. John Ambulance.

Will it provide immunity to Covid-19?

Analysis shows that the sting can prevent 95 percent of people from getting Covid-19, including 94 percent in older age groups. Immunity is expected to last at least six months and possibly much longer.

Side effects?

The Pfizer vaccine has been tested on 43,500 people in six countries and no safety concerns were raised.

The World Health Organization says the bump is an "extra element of control" in the fight against Covid-19, which means other measures, like social distancing and wearing masks, will stay in place

Some of the subjects had pain in their arms, fever, and sore muscles, but nothing serious.

The drug and health products regulator oversees everything that is more dangerous.

Are Social Distancing and Masks Still Needed?

Dr. David Nabarro, the World Health Organization's special envoy for Covid-19, says the vaccine is "an additional control element" and adds, "It will not replace the other measures for a few months, maybe even for a year, so we" We have to Continue to distance ourselves physically, be hygienic, wear masks and isolate when we are sick. "

The costs

Ministers didn't say how much, but the US government ordered 100 million cans from Pfizer for $ 1.95 billion.

That means about 30 pounds for the two shots per person.

The Oxford vaccine is likely to cost £ 2.23 per dose or £ 4.46 for the required two-dose course.

Immunity begins to build up after the first vaccine, but the second is needed to ensure full protection from Covid-19. Health Secretary Matt Hancock hopes the government will ease restrictions once infection rates fall

How many people will need to be vaccinated to lift the restrictions?

Health Secretary Matt Hancock admits that while the vaccine protects a person, it is unclear what effect it will have in reducing transmission.

He said that "as more and more vulnerable people are being vaccinated, we hope that these rates will go down so we can lift the restrictions".

Is it available privately?

No. Pfizer only supplies governments "in the early stages of the pandemic".

Vaccination records

Although there are no plans for official “immunity passports” that would make vaccinated and thus virus-free people easier to access places such as pubs and restaurants, ministers admit that they have discussed their possible use.
