New NHS guidance on vaccination for seafarers

20 August 2021

New guidance on vaccination for seafarers has been published by the NHS. 

The 'FAQs on Seafarers and vaccination' document covers availability for both British citizens and international crew. It outlines which licensed vaccines are available including Pfizer (Cominarty), AstraZeneca and Moderna, and provides further information on how to access jabs at UK ports.

The document acknowledges the special circumstances seafarers experience in accessing vaccination due to their working conditions: 'Seafarers are a specialised international workforce vital to support national and international supply lines for critical items and general trade.

'It is therefore inappropriate to consider them as one single group which one solution will suit.'
