I’m kind of stressing out as I don’t know if I have catched corona or not. My appointment is tomorrow and I have a dry throat and dry cough. Not saying it’s definitely Covid but it’s worrying bc I go to work and deal with different people every day. Should I just post pone my vaccine for next week or just take it???

You are screened for these symptoms before you're allowed entry. If you have a new cough you need to be isolating and organising a test.

Id book a PCR test if i were you just to be on the safe side, if its positive isolate and rebook your vaccine, if not just be wary

As above, book a PCR test. The NHS defines the cough as: "a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)".

If this fits your symptoms, you will want to get a test first. If it is positive, you need to rebook the vaccination for 28 days after the test date. You may need to rebook your vaccination anyway to allow for the test results to come back.

Take a test if you can, probably inform the centre you're booked into that you've developed this cough and just take their advice.
