Vaccination, combined with basic public health measures, is the most effective way to protect the community against COVID-19.

With over 6 million vaccine doses administered to date, each week we reach another important milestone in our journey out of this pandemic.

If you are pregnant and you have concerns about taking the vaccine, speak to your GP, obstetrician or midwife for guidance and for bespoke health advice for your pregnancy. Use trusted sources of information such as the HSE or Department of Health for the latest vaccine information.
