The Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists together with the National Immunisation Advisory Committee at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland have compiled information for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and their doctors about the COVID-19 vaccine. This information has also been endorsed by the HSE National Women and Infants Health Programme.

“Today we are issuing information to help to inform women who are pregnant or breastfeeding about the COVID-19 vaccine and also for their doctors which can help to inform discussions at this critical time,” said Dr Cliona Murphy, Chair of the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

She continued, “It is important that women seek trusted information about the vaccines and can assess their risks with regards to COVID-19 and the vaccine in consultation with their healthcare providers.”
