Covid-19 vaccine and Ramadan

Posted on March 24, 2021 by AireAdmin

Ramadan starts on 13 April this year.  The British Islamic Medical Association has issued a statement confirming that people should not delay having their Covid-19 vaccination as part of Ramadan. They are clear that injections administered for non-nutritional purposes whilst fasting do not invalidate the fast.  Read their advice here https://britishima.org/operation-vaccination/hub/statements/#FAST and please note they also advise that you should consult with your local mosque, scholars and healthcare professionals.

The Muslim Council of Britain has developed a number of resources to help Muslims observing Ramadan to stay safe and healthy; this includes advice on attending prayers and top tips for Eid celebrations https://mcb.org.uk/resources/coronavirus/
