Covid-19 vaccine in pregnancy

Follow the Ministry of Health announcement, we encourage anyone who is pregnant to get a COVID-19 vaccine as part of Group 3 at any stage of your pregnancy. This is because people who are pregnant can become very sick if they get COVID-19 infection.

Is it safe for me and my baby?

  • Evidence from the large number of pregnant people who have already been vaccinated globally, indicates that there are no safety concerns with administering COVID-19 vaccines at any stage of pregnancy.
  • Vaccinating during pregnancy may also be helpful for the baby, as there is evidence of antibody transfer in cord blood and breast milk, which may offer protection to infants through passive immunity.

If you have any questions or concerns, discuss them with your healthcare professional.
