Pregnant women can use the National Booking Service to book their vaccination on the same basis as other eligible adults. The Booking Service has been updated to ensure that those who are pregnant are offered appointments only at vaccination centres offering the appropriate vaccine for their needs. Anyone who is pregnant and who has questions about vaccination can speak to their general practitioner or maternity service or speak to a healthcare professional at their vaccination appointment.
