Making a decision about having the COVID-19 vaccine

Everyone should have the opportunity to take an active role in making decisions about:

  • their emotional wellbeing
  • their physical health and wellbeing
  • things important to them.

We have a decision-making tool that can help you decide about having the COVID-19 vaccine. You can fill in the tool yourself and take it with you to your vaccination appointment.

If you’re supporting someone with a disability to decide about the COVID-19 vaccine, you can read the guidance information.
