What happens after the vaccination?

Up until now, people have been asked to wait for 15 minutes before leaving the vaccination centre, following their vaccine.

Due to the Omicron variant, the booster programme for adults is being accelerated. As part of this, and given the very low rate of serious reaction to the vaccine, the 15 minute wait has been suspended, as we now have much more experience with giving these vaccines to millions of people. People are not normally observed for 15 minutes after other vaccinations.

Further information on this can be found here.
