Medical exemptions for the covid-19 vaccination are only available for a small number of patients.

The possible reasons for exemptions are limited. Examples that might be reasons for a medical exemptions are;

  • People receiving end of life care where vaccination is not in the persons best interests.
  • People with learning disabilities, autism or a combination of impairments which mean that vaccination and testing result in distress and who cannot be vaccinated through reasonable adjustments such as an accessible environment.
  • A person with severe allergies to ALL currently available vaccines.
  • Those who have an adverse reaction to the first dose (for example, myocarditis)
  • Anticoagulation and clotting disorders would only be viewed as a need for exemption in exceptional circumstances.

The clinical decision on your medical exemption is final.

You can’t appeal the decision.
