The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is an independent expert advisory committee of the United Kingdom Department of Health and Social Care.

JCVI was established in 1963 "To advise the Secretaries of State for Health, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland on matters relating to communicable diseases, preventable and potentially preventable through immunisation." The advisory body makes recommendations to the UK government concerning vaccination schedules and vaccine safety.

JCVI chairman is Professor Andrew Pollard of Oxford Vaccine Group in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Oxford.[1]

On 9 September 2021 the JCVI approved the AstraZeneca vaccine and Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine to be used for booster jabs, to begin immediatley.[2]

Nighat Arif“Will the covid vaccine affect my fertility? There is absolutely no evidence that Covid-19/Vaccines can affect the fertility of a woman or a man there is very strong data that shows that men and women have gone on to fall pregnant after having both doses of the vaccine there's no need to avoid pregnancy after vaccination as the vaccine cannot give your baby COVID-19. The British Fertility Society and the World Health Organization and the JCVI have all looked at the latest data and research and they say that the vaccines are safe and encourage everyone to please take the vaccine when you are offered.”Nighat Arif24 May 2021
