In this video Dr Gayatri Amirthalingam explains that there are very few people who cannot safely have this vaccine because it is not a live vaccine, so people with underlying health conditions should still be vaccinated.

If you have an underlying health condition or are immunosuppressed, please discuss having this vaccine when you are invited, with your GP or health provider.
