 We would like express our heartfelt gratitude to all our health professionals - our physicians, nurses, emergency responders, pharmacists, lab technicians, allied health professionals,  and administrative staff.  During this crisis they have selflessly risked their own health caring for COVID patients, while also continuing to care for patients who have other medical conditions. THANK YOU

Although pregnant women are at no greater risk of being infected by SARS-CoV-2, the woman and her infant are more likely to develop complications from COVID-19. Pregnant and lactating women were excluded from initial COVID-19 vaccine trials; thus, data to guide vaccine decision-making are lacking.

The Vaccine Ministerial Advisory Committee (MAC) is continuously reviewing vaccine safety in pregnancy for all vaccines included in, or considered for inclusion, in the national vaccine rollout.
