COVID-19 vaccines if you live in Guadeloupe
As information on the national immunization program becomes available, this page will be updated.
The Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is the UK authority responsible for assessing the safety, quality and efficacy of vaccines. It has authorized the Pfizer / BioNTech, Oxford / AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines for temporary supply and use in the UK. Learn more about MHRA approval for these vaccines.
UK nationals living abroad should seek medical advice from their local healthcare provider in the country where they reside. Information on vaccines used in other national programs, including regulatory status, should be available from local authorities. This list of strict regulatory authorities recognized by the World Health Organization can also be a useful source of additional information.

There is a range of government financial supports that you can access when you cannot return due to coronavirus restrictions.
If you are in Guadeloupe and have exhausted all other options to cover essential living expenses while waiting to return home, you can apply for an emergency loan for your living expenses from the UK government. You can only apply if you normally live in the UK and cannot return home. This last resort option is aimed at the poor and you will have to repay the loan when you return to the UK. Apply for an emergency loan.
