Frequently asked questions

Do fit and healthy people have to get vaccinated?

COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease. Even if you’re fit and healthy, you can still get COVID-19 and spread it to others, which can be particularly dangerous to loved ones with pre-existing conditions and illnesses.

You may also experience long-term side effects from being unwell – this is called ‘Long COVID’ or ‘Long Haulers’. If this happens you might experience symptoms such as fatigue, breathlessness and chest pain.
