Up until now, people receiving the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines have been asked to wait for 15 minutes before leaving the site. This is to ensure that you are feeling fit and well, and are not having any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine.

Due to the Omicron variant, the booster programme for adults is being accelerated, and as the rate of patients having an anaphylaxis reaction to the vaccine is very low, the 15 minute wait has been suspended.
