During the pandemic, the financial framework moved to a system of nationally agreed block contracts with retrospective top-ups for reasonable COVID-19 related costs. While the costs collected in 2020/21 include elements of care delivered to patients, they do not contain an explicit price or cost for COVID-19 vaccination damage and therefore there is no specific related budget.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency monitors the safety of all vaccines. The Department also works with public health partners to review the effectiveness and impact of the COVID-19 vaccines to ensure the benefits continue to outweigh any potential side effects.
