Who do I contact if I experience side effects after leaving the site?

You can talk to one of our pharmacists or your GP. Most side effects are mild and pass by themselves. You should move your arm (to help spread the vaccination around your body), and try a simple painkiller such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.

If you think you are having a serious allergic reaction, you should call 999, although this is very rare and usually happens within minutes of injection. Our healthcare professionals are trained to deal with this on site.
