Register to get a COVID-19 vaccine at Polonia Pharmacy
COVID-19 VACCINE Update
Due to the unavailability of Janssen Covid-19, our online registration has been temporarily closed. Registration of interest in vaccines will reopen as soon as we receive the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccines.
Beginning next week Polonia Pharmacy will offer the Janssen single-dose COVID-19 vaccine to people aged 18-34 or over the age of 50.
You will need to book an appointment. Online registration form will be available from next week.
Our team are trained and eager to offer this valuable service. Vaccination appointments will be given to eligible patients. The rollout of vaccines and vaccination appointments will be limited only by supply to our pharmacy.
Covid-19 Vaccination is Free.
JANSEEN VACCINE INFORMATION
Vaccines are the most effective way to prevent infectious diseases. They prepare your immune system (your body’s natural defences) to recognise and defend itself against a specific virus.
The Janssen vaccine is also known as ‘the Johnson &Johnson vaccine’. Johnson &Johnson are the company that make this vaccine.
You will get this vaccine as an injection in your upper arm. It will only take a few minutes.
You will need 1 dose of the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine to get long-lasting protection. It takes 14 days for the vaccine to work. This is when you are fully vaccinated.
Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these side effects are mild to moderate and short-term.
Not everyone gets side effects.
BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT
Vaccines come in vials that contain multiple doses. We need to coordinate patient appointment times to minimise any wastage of vaccines once vaccine vials are opened.
Step 1 Check you’re in a group currently being vaccinated and read the current vaccine information leaflet.
Step 2 Complete your pre-consultation form and book your appointment online.
Step 3 Go in store for your vaccination.
