The Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in conjunction with the Irish Medicines in Pregnancy Service at the Rotunda Hospital, the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, and the National Women and Infants Health Programme (NWIHP) have compiled information for women who are pregnant and breastfeeding about the COVID-19 vaccine.
What we know about COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccines has evolved since the pandemic first began. We now have more information about the potentially serious impact of COVID-19 on pregnant woman. We also now have more information on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy. This Questions & Answers document has been updated to reflect current evidence and recommendations in Ireland.
