Update on COVID-19 Vaccine

We are receiving many calls and enquiries about the vaccine and how that may impact people with RA or JIA.


The most up to date guidance on which groups of people will be eligible to receive the vaccine(s) and in what priority can find out more at www.gov.uk/government/groups/joint-committee-on-vaccination-and-immunisation.

As progress is being made at such a pace and there are massive logistical issues yet to be resolved as you will have seen in the media it will still be some time potentially before you will be contacted in your specific area and offered a vaccination.

NRAS is committed to ensuring that we give you the most accurate and up to date information as it becomes available which is why we cannot answer all of your questions at this time.

We have produced Frequently Asked Questions which we hope will respond to many of your queries. 

Links to other useful information regarding the vaccines can be found here:

NHS information regarding Vaccine roll out: www.england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccination-programme/primary-care-guidance/

We will bring you links to other NHS information for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales as soon as possible.
