The Covid-19 vaccines and kidney disease
We've been working with the professional kidney organisations and charities to ensure we all provide consistent, accurate information about the Covid-19 vaccines and work together to drive change for people affected by kidney disease.
Things change quickly, so we’ll try and keep the information as up-to-date as we can.
About the vaccine
- Millions of people in the UK have received one or more of the Covid-19 vaccines. They are all suitable for adults with kidney disease.
- There are several types of vaccine. Find out more about them and how they work in the frequently asked questions below.
- You should have the vaccine when you are offered it, and any booster doses. Evidence suggests that people diagnosed with chronic kidney disease are more at risk of serious complications if they catch Covid-19.
Continue to take care
Even if you have received the vaccine, we recommend you seek advice from your GP or other care provider to assess the risk to you and your friends and family.
