Important information if you’ve had the vaccination:

You must continue to follow the guidelines after you have had your first and second vaccines.

Keep reducing your contact. Follow the hands, face and space guidance. This is to make sure that while you have protection you don’t pass it on to other people. The government will let us know when the guidance and rules relax. For now we must do all we can to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

 

Vaccines during pregnancy

Following recent JCVI guidance, pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should be offered the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine or Moderna vaccine. All vaccination sites offering the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines must ensure that pregnant women are able to book appointments at the same time as non-pregnant women, based on age and clinical group. PHE’s Green Book has been updated to reflect this advice and can be found here.
