Can I administer this vaccine?
Severely immunosuppressed people should not administer the vaccine as the risk of infection from the environment, while expected to be low, is unknown.1
Other healthcare workers who have less severe immunosuppression or are pregnant should follow normal clinical practice to avoid inhaling the vaccine and ensure that they themselves are appropriately vaccinated.1
