To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of reducing the time between covid-19 vaccine doses for pregnant women in line with priority groups 1 to 9.
29 June 2021
To protect those most vulnerable to COVID-19, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation advised that appointments for a second dose of the vaccine should be brought forward from 12 to eight weeks for those in priority cohorts one to nine. Pregnant women in these cohorts can therefore book their second dose eight weeks after their first.
Pregnant women are advised to discuss the risks and benefits of receiving the vaccination with their clinician.
