COVID-19 vaccine and pregnancy
As part of continued efforts to encourage vaccine uptake among pregnant women, the health board will hold a Question and Answer Session via Zoom on Friday, 20 August, at 10am, in association the Association of Voluntary Organisations (AVOW).
Stacey Jones, Matron of the COVID-19 Vaccination programme in North East Wales, will be available to discuss the latest information for pregnant women, and answer any questions.
Please remember that COVID-19 vaccines are recommended in pregnancy and vaccination is the best way to protect against the known risks of COVID-19 for both women and babies. This includes protection from admission to intensive care for expectant mums and the premature birth of their baby.
There is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility.
