Important information when you come for your appointment

To ensure we can keep to social distancing guidance, please do not turn up any earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment.

You will be greeted by a member of the team when you arrive, who will check your details and tell you what to do and where to go next. If you have any concerns about receiving the vaccine, for whatever reason, you will have an opportunity to discuss these with a member of staff.

Remember to:

  • Bring your staff ID and photo ID (if your staff ID does not have a picture on it)
  • Bring your NHS number and photo ID if you are not a member of BHRUT staff, with proof of age
  • Read the information leaflet provided to you after you made your booking
  • Wear suitable clothing – the vaccine will be given in your arm

After your vaccine

If you have had the Pfizer vaccine, there is a 15 minute observation period. Severe reactions are extremely rare, however, some people may experience some mild side effects such as feeling a bit under the weather – this is nothing to worry about!

You can view the full list of possible side effects, as well as other health and safety information regarding the jab, on the NHS website.

An appointment to receive your second dose of the vaccine will be booked automatically by the system.

You will receive a pocket-sized certificate to show you’ve received the vaccine, please remember to bring this to your second dose and booster appointment.
