If you've been vaccinated overseas

Nimbuscare, who are operating the NHS vaccination clinics in York, have provided us with the following advice for students who have been vaccinated against Covid in their home country. Please look for the manufacturer of your vaccine in the list below, and follow the advice given.

If you received a first dose of Covid-19 vaccine overseas that is also available in the UK, you should receive the same vaccine for your second dose in the UK.

If the vaccine you received for your first dose is not available in the UK, the most similar alternative will be offered. See Public Health England information for healthcare practitioners for vaccine interchangeability guidance.
