The COVID-19 vaccines are our best defence against the virus. Getting vaccinated means protecting yourself and may also help to protect your family, friends and patients from the virus. Birmingham Lord Mayor, Mohammed Azim, has delivered a special video message here to encourage citizens to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
The vaccine has been developed and approved following a number of clinical trials involving thousands of people across the world. It has also undergone mandatory safety tests to ensure it is safe for humans, but if you would like more information, the Birmingham and Solihull NHS website has useful FAQs that might help answer them. It covers everything from safety and effectiveness to side effects and eligibility.
