Coronavirus COVID-19 Vaccine Information

How the vaccines work

These vaccines will protect you from getting severely ill or dying if you get COVID-19. 

The vaccines train your immune system to recognise and clear out the virus, before it makes you seriously ill. Your body’s immune system builds this protection over time.

The virus that causes COVID-19 (called SARS-CoV-2) has spikes of protein on each viral particle. These spike proteins allow the virus to attach to cells and cause disease.
