NHS England has developed responses to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Covid-19 vaccines for a general public audience. Also available are responses to questions around fertility, pregnancy and Covid-19 vaccination.

The National Vaccination Programme has published responses to frequently asked questions regarding the second Covid-19 vaccine dose, with information on the location and the second dose interval period.


The public-facing Covid-19 information on the NCL CCG website was fully revised and updated in November 2021, with comprehensive guidance and FAQs about booster doses, third primary doses, Covid-19 vaccines for under 18s, flu vaccines, Covid-19 tests, and further FAQs about vaccine safety and other concerns.

Further information

Practices may also find the national communications toolkit useful in helping to manage patient enquiries regarding Covid-19 vaccination.

Please do speak to your borough primary care team if you have any other questions relating to the Covid-19 vaccination programme.
