Covid - 19

Pregnancy & Covid Vaccination


On 16 December 2021, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) announced that pregnant women are now considered a ‘vulnerable’ group within the COVID-19 vaccination programme, emphasising the urgency of them receiving COVID-19 vaccination and booster doses.

Vaccination is strongly recommended in pregnancy, but the decision whether to have the vaccine is your choice. The information below will help you make an informed choice about whether to get your COVID-19 vaccines if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.

Dear Patients,

Mask wearing guidance and social distancing measures will change from 19th July 2021 as per government guidelines announced recently. We must stress however, that the same guidance suggests caution and recommends ongoing wearing of masks in closed spaces, small and crowded areas and where vulnerable people will be present.

National guidance also outlines NHS patients, staff and visitors must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings. As you will often be in close proximity to our clinicians and potentially other vulnerable patients when you come to us, we will continue to ask patients to wear masks on our premises and practice social distancing until further notice. This is to minimise disruption to our service and ensure those most vulnerable are still protected when accessing care.

Thank you for your understanding.

Government guidance for people whose immune system means they are at higher risk

If you are in one of the two groups with weakened immune systems (eligible for a third primary dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or eligible for new treatments for COVID-19) the Government advises you to:

• ensure you have had all of the vaccines you are eligible to receive, including your booster

• continue to follow any condition-specific advice you may have been given by your specialist

• work from home if you can. If you cannot work from home, speak to your employer about what temporary arrangements they can make to reduce your risk

• wait until 14 days after another person’s most recent dose of a COVID-19 vaccine before being in close contact with them

• avoid enclosed crowded spaces

• practice social distancing if that feels right for you and your friends

• ventilate your home by opening windows and doors to let fresh air in

• ask friends and family to take a rapid lateral flow antigen test before visiting you

• ask home visitors to wear face coverings

• wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
