  • Pregnant or believe to be pregnant

    In the early stages of the vaccination programme, pregnant women were asked to hold back on getting their jabs. This was a precautionary measure, which allowed more data to become available on safety.

    With that data now obtained, pregnant women are advised to get vaccinated.

    For advice about getting the COVID-19 vaccination, you can speak to your obstetric provider or midwife.

    Also, we are running special antenatal vaccination clinics.

    At these clinics we can offer 1st and 2nd doses to pregnant women and those up to six weeks postnatally.
    ▶️Remember there must be an 8 week interval between 1st and 2nd doses.
    ▶️Booster vaccines may be offered to pregnant women aged 18+ antenatally and up to 6 weeks postnatal provided there’s a time from of 3 months from receiving their 2nd Vaccination.
