PDA updates Covid-19 vaccine FAQs

The PDA has updated their Covid-19 vaccine FAQs for pharmacists to use when talking to patients, to help answer any questions or concerns they may have and to help them to overcome vaccine hesitancy.

Thu 27th May 2021 The PDA

This comes just one week after the PDA launched a new guide to vaccine administration in light of the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination programme.

The updated FAQs include new guidance for pregnant women and updated information regarding potential side effects.

The FAQs are part of the #GetVaccinated campaign which is calling on all pharmacists to have the COVID-19 vaccine and to help encourage their patients, family and friends, especially those in the BAME community, to do the same.

The PDA has published a number of downloadable resources that can be used to help support the campaign.


Get involved

  • Pharmacists and all PDA members are encouraged to get involved in the #GetVaccinated campaign by recording and then posting a video to social media using the hashtags #GetVaccinated and #PDAbame, explaining why it is important to get vaccinated. Don’t forget to also tag us in the post!
  • If you are multilingual, we also encourage you to record and post your message in another language.
  • Open conversations with patients in your pharmacy and community about the vaccination programme, encourage them to get vaccinated when they can and reassure them that it is safe.
  • Talk to your friends and family too, everyone should have the vaccine to protect themselves, their family, and their community.
