Chris Seeks To Clarify If The AstraZeneca Vaccine Is Still Available Across The UK
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the AstraZeneca covid-19 vaccine remains available across England to people who (a) have not yet been vaccinated and (b) are eligible for a booster vaccination; and whether there are any restrictions on the administration of that vaccine.
All eligible individuals who have not yet been vaccinated continue to be offered a primary course of COVID-19 vaccination and, as appropriate, a booster dose. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that those eligible for the booster vaccination should be offered either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, due to the strong booster effect conferred by these vaccines. The JCVI’s statement of 7 May 2021 on the use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is available at the following link:
