Ramadan began on Monday 12th April and ends on Wednesday 12th May 2021 and as such, will coincide with many of our patients COVID-19 vaccination. As such, the British Islamic Medical Association (BIMA) has issued the following important statement:

“Taking the COVID-19 vaccines currently licensed in the UK does not invalidate the fast, as per the opinion of Islamic scholars. Individuals should not delay their COVID-19 vaccinations on account of Ramadan.”
