Questions about special conditions

 

Can vaccinations be offered at home for patients who are housebound?

A roving vaccination team is available to administer vaccines to all clinically housebound patients in Liverpool, who are unable to attend a vaccination centre for medical reasons.

If your GP record shows that you are clinically housebound and you haven’t been contacted about this yet, you should contact your GP practice to arrange this.

If your existing GP records do not recognise you (or a family member) as clinically housebound but you think a home vaccination is required, please discuss this with their GP practice.

 

Can I still have the vaccine if I am immuno-supressed?

Yes, severely immunosuppressed patients should have the vaccine to help protect them from the risk of Covid-19, and are currently being prioritised for a third dose.

This is because people who are severely immuno-suppressed may have a less effective response from the vaccine.

Household members of those who are immuno-supressed should also be vaccinated to help increase their protection.

 

I want to check the vaccine is safe for me because of a condition, allergy, or medication that I am on. Who can I speak to for advice?

The covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective for the vast majority of people. However, you should not have the COVID-19 vaccine if you have ever had a serious allergic reaction (called 'anaphylaxis') to a previous dose of the same vaccine or any of the ingredients in the vaccine.

Please speak to you own GP if you need further advice on your suitability.
