We understand that people who have had their vaccinations of the vaccine are keen to get their next dose as soon as possible, so you can get maximum protection from the virus.

Even with just one dose of the vaccine, people are given a significant level of protection against coronavirus. Every time we vaccinate someone for their second dose, it means that we are not offering the vaccination to someone else for the first time. By offering more people the first dose of the vaccine we are able to greatly reduce the chances of the most vulnerable people getting severely ill from coronavirus.
