Covid-19 vaccination Digital Consent Form

  • As you finalise your online booking you will automatically be asked to complete a digital consent form – this needs to be completed
  • This digital consent form will cover both dose 1 and dose 2 vaccinations
  • A paper copy of the consent form is viewable here for reference, but we can only accept submissions of the digital version
  • The consent form includes questions about conditions such as bleeding disorders and anticoagulant medication (Please understand that if you answer ‘yes’ to these questions you can still have the vaccination, but we will need to discuss your situation further at the time of vaccination to enable informed consent)
