Covid-19 vaccination during Ramadan

Taking the covid-19 vaccine during Ramadan does not invalidate the fast


With Ramadan just around the corner (12 April – 12 May), it’s important to note that the vaccine doesn’t affect or invalidate fasting.

When it’s your turn, have the vaccine and don’t delay until after Ramadan. As shared by the British Islamic Medical Association, Islamic Scholars’ opinion is that taking the COVID-19 vaccine does not invalidate a fast, as it is an intramuscular injection.

You can find out everything you need to know about having the vaccine through Ramadan here.
