The COVID-19 vaccines have gone through the same clinical trials and safety checks as all other licensed vaccines.

But these vaccines are new and long-term side effect information is limited.

As more people in Ireland and around the world get vaccinated, more information on side effects may become available. We will update this page with any new information.
