Anyone who has had a positive COVID-19 test will need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine. This starts from the date of their positive PCR or LFD test:
- For anyone aged 18 years old or over, wait 4 weeks (28 days)
- For anyone aged 12-17, wait 12 weeks (84 days)
- For anyone aged 12 to 17 years old and at high-risk from COVID-19, wait 4 weeks (28 days)
