Pregnant women vaccine advice: Experts make new recommendation after AZ fears

0


The revised decision follows data from the US, which showed around 90,000 pregnant women had received jabs – mainly the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines – “without any safety concerns being raised”.

The JCVI added that it is “preferable” for pregnant women in the UK to be offered these two vaccines where available.

It added: “There is no evidence to suggest that other vaccines are unsafe for pregnant women, but more research is needed.”

What’s more, women who are trying for a baby, have just given birth or are breast feeding can be vaccinated using any vaccine, the advice states.
