The Covid-19 vaccine and heart disease


With the first patients across the UK now being vaccinated against Covid-19, many people with pre-existing heart conditions are quite understandably concerned about the vaccine and whether or not it might pose a risk to them.

The British Foundation has a very useful Q&A page about the Covid-19 vaccine and cardiovascular disorders, which you can access here.

The British Society for Heart Failure has also released a position statement about the vaccine in the context of heart failure, which you can read here.

We fully endorse the national and international guidance which is that anyone who is offered the vaccine should accept it.

For the latest updates about Covid numbers and information specific to your area, the government is releasing daily summaries which you can access by clicking here.
