The new MIMS table of COVID-19 vaccines provides details of vaccine type, minimum age for use, dosage and storage conditions for the three vaccines available in the UK: Comirnaty (from Pfizer/BioNTech), Vaxzevria (from AstraZeneca) and the Moderna vaccine.
Advice is also provided on use of the vaccines in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The single-dose Janssen COVID-19 vaccine is due to be rolled out in the next few months and will be added to the table as soon as it becomes available. It uses adenovirus vector technology, similar to Vaxzevria.
A new contraindication was recently added to the prescribing information for Vaxzevria, advising that the vaccine should not be given to people with a history of capillary leak syndrome.
