COVID-19 vaccines during Ramadan

The safest and most effective way to protect yourself, your family and those most at risk from COVID-19 is by getting the vaccine.

To reassure our Muslim community, the British Islamic Medical Association has reviewed the analysis of Islamic scholars and confirmed that having the vaccine does not invalidate the fast. The vaccine does not contain pork or other animal, foetal or alcohol products. This reflects the advice of the majority of Islamic scholars that it is permissible.​

NHSE has created a question and answer guideline for vaccinations during Ramadan; including information on side effects during the fasting period and rearranging vaccinations. There is also a short helpful guide on supporting COVID-19 vaccine uptake during Ramadan.
