COVID-19 Vaccination Facts 

  • A full course of the COVID-19 vaccine reduces a person’s chances of becoming seriously ill from coronavirus
  • Once vaccinated, it will take a two-week period for your body to build up protection against COVID-19
  • No vaccines are completely effective and so additional precautions must continue to be taken
  • You may still be able to get or spread COVID-19 once vaccinated; studies are continuing in this area
  • Some people show no or mild symptoms of having coronavirus

Safe Behaviours to Protect Everyone

To support and maintain safe environments, everyone, even when vaccinated, must continue to:

  • Maintain social distancing from people outside of their household or support bubble
  • Wear face coverings in enclosed spaces
  • Wash their hands more frequently and use hand gel when required
  • Limit the number and frequency of social and physical contact outside of your household or support bubble
  • Meet people outside
  • Ventilate homes and workspaces to reduce the spread of COVID-19
  • Self-isolate if symptoms of COVID-19 develop
  • Follow any current government restrictions that are in place

Safe Working Behaviours

Within an adult social care setting everyone must also:

  • Wear the correct PPE for the support being provided to a service user
  • Continue to follow the testing regime in place at the service
  • Self-isolate where instructed to do so or as a result of a positive test result
  • Follow COVID-19 uniform care procedures
  • Follow all infection control procedures in place
