Vaccine FAQs

Vaccine FAQs

Vaccinations have been used many times through the years. WCC have produced a flyer with common questions about the vaccine including:

  • How have the vaccines been produced so quickly?
  • The first vaccines licensed use genetic technology, will it interfere with my own DNA?
  • How long does immunity from the vaccines last?
  • What has changed to make 12 weeks safe for the dose interval when it wasn't last week?
  • Is the vaccine safe for people with preexisting conditions?

For the answers to the questions and a number of others, click here to download and distribute. See Vaccine Explainer videos from Public Health England.
