Know someone who is Pregnant? Make sure they have their covid vaccination Posted on 4 Aug 2021


Paula Wilkins, Chief Nurse at NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said:  “We are seeing pregnant women with the virus that have not been jabbed being admitted to hospitals and so we are really encouraging more ladies to be vaccinated to prevent this.

 “We want to reassure pregnant women that COVID-19 vaccines are the safest and best way to protect you and your baby from severe illness and premature birth. 

“Please book now or visit a walk-in centre where you do not need an appointment. You can have the vaccine at any stage of your pregnancy and you should not worry about the vaccine giving you Covid as it does not contain any live virus.”
