New guidance has been issued for the use of the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine. This follows further reviews by the independent regulator, the MHRA, and the Commission for Human Medicines, of a very small number of people in the UK who have developed a rare blood-clotting condition since having the Oxford AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.

Everyone who has had the AstraZeneca vaccine should still have a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, irrespective of age, unless they suffered any serious side effects after their first vaccination.

How was your COVID-19 vaccination experience?

If you have recently had your COVID-19 vaccination at either Elland Road or Thackray we’d love to hear from you. 

We will share your comments with our vaccination teams to establish what we are doing well, and what we can do better.  Your feedback will also help us to inform others what to expect when going for their vaccination.  All feedback is anonymous. It’s a quick survey so shouldn’t take up too much of your time.
