NHS: Covid-19 Vaccine Update - New Guidance for Pregnant Women


The JCVI has advised that pregnant women should be offered the #COVID19 vaccination at the same time as everyone else, based on age and clinical risk. There have been no specific safety concerns from COVID-19 vaccines in relation to pregnancy. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/jcvi-issues-new-advice-on-covid-19-vaccination-for-pregnant-women ​ 

If you're pregnant, you should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine when you're eligible. You'll be offered the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine because they've been used more in pregnancy in other countries and have not caused any safety issues. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/
