COVID-19 Vaccine

Information for people on the liver transplant waiting list

If you are on the transplant waiting list, did you know that NHSBT recommend that you have two COVID vaccine doses 21-28 days apart (depending upon vaccine type)?

NHSBT, the body that oversees transplantation in the UK states, "For patients on the transplant waiting list, it is recommended that two doses of vaccine are given 21-28 days apart (depending upon vaccine type), before starting immunosuppression therapy." 

You can find out more from section 2.6 of the document called 'NHS Blood and Transplant COVID-19 Vaccine – Q&As for Clinicians and Patients - INF1559' available at odt.nhs.uk/covid-19-advice-for-clinicians/#vaccine (accessed 18 March 2021).
