We have produced resources to help healthcare professionals working with people who have kidney disease explain the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine and receiving all recommended doses.

It is important people who are on kidney dialysis or have a kidney transplant have all the recommended doses because they may get less protection from the vaccine than the wider population.

Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine on NHS inform (external website).
