Covid-19 Vaccination Consent Letter
I would like to inform you that the government is making COVID-19 vaccinations available to all health care staff and we would like to ask if you wish to give your consent to be vaccinated.
Vaccination is free of charge and the Government’s highest priority is delivering the vaccines to all eligible staff.
The aim of the COVID 19 Vaccine is to help protect individuals from becoming unwell with or dying from COVID-19 disease. It will also help reduce the risk of healthcare staff spreading infection to vulnerable clients, patients and family members.
Information about COVID-19 vaccines is available at: www.gov.uk/government/collections/immunisation and www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine
For women of childbearing age, please read the detailed guidance at: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination
Indications are that some vaccine recipients may experience a painful heavy arm where they had the injection and may feel tired or have a mild fever for a couple of days. These are common side effects following vaccination. If required paracetamol may help to reduce these effects and keep you as comfortable as possible following vaccination. Please read the product information for more details on the vaccine and possible side effects by searching Coronavirus Yellow Card. You can also report suspected side effects on the same website or by downloading the Yellow Card app.
During the vaccination delivery a range of measures will be maintained to keep staff safe from COVID-19. Staff giving the vaccine will be wearing personal protective equipment and will abide by all the cleaning and disinfection requirements.
Once we have your consent, we will schedule the vaccination appointments. Please note two doses of the vaccine may be required. By consenting you will be playing your part in protecting all patients, clients and staff from catching and spreading COVID-19.
Please confirm your decision by ticking your response and signing this letter.
