COVID-19 vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine is strongly recommended in pregnancy as pregnant women/birthing people are at increased risk from coronavirus.

Some pregnant women/birthing people have become seriously unwell and needed hospital treatment. Pregnant women/birthing people with coronavirus have a higher risk of being admitted to intensive care than people of the same age who are not pregnant. If you get coronavirus with symptoms in pregnancy, it's three times more likely that your baby will be born early.

It's important that pregnant women/birthing people get all the recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. COVID vaccines are available during flu season. The vaccine can be given at any stage during pregnancy. Reports from around the world show Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are safe to use in pregnancy.
