It added: “Please note that any delay in receiving the second dose would not have any negative consequences on individuals and therefore, would not need to start fresh the vaccination.

“The Ministry advice people to maintain and strictly keep their vaccination cards safe and for those who received the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine would not need to receive a different vaccine apart from AstraZeneca.”
