Pregnant Women Can Now Get Covid-19 Vaccine At Any Stage

Pregnant women can now receive a covid-19 vaccine at any stage in their pregnancy.

It comes after a number of updates were made to Ireland’s rollout programme.

In April this year, the NIAC had recommended that pregnant women be offered mRNA COVID-19 vaccination between 14-36 weeks’ gestation.

However, NIAC has updated this recommendation based on the growing body of evidence on the safety of vaccines.

It shows the benefits of vaccination outweigh any known or potential risks during pregnancy.

Meanwhile, people with compromised immune systems will receive an additional dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

A third dose of an mRNA vaccine will be given to anybody aged over 12 who has a weakened immune system.
