“It simply came to our notice then. It’s really important to get their Covid-19 vaccine.It now protects thousands of pregnant women around the world.
“Today’s data is extremely reliable and continue to show that vaccines are the best way to keep pregnant women and their babies free of the virus.”
“Many of the most vulnerable women in our society are not vaccinated.”
Dr Mary Ramsay, head of the UKHSA immunization department, said: “Every pregnant woman who has not been vaccinated should have the confidence to brush her teeth. It may help prevent the serious side effects of Covid-19 infection during pregnancy.
“This collection of evidence will help midwives and other health professionals provide better information for pregnant women and increase absorption.”
“Our figures highlight the severe inequalities in exposure to many of the most vulnerable women in our society who have not been vaccinated. It is important for women from all walks of life to accept their immunization offer to protect themselves. ”
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (OVIC) has recommended that all pregnant women be vaccinated twice, as the proportion of women who have been vaccinated during pregnancy and gradually increased since April 16.
