AstraZeneva vaccine: Should you have jab if you’re pregnant? Latest MHRA advice

Is the vaccine safe for pregnant women?

The latest information from the MHRA states pregnant women should speak to their GP or healthcare professional before having the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The advice reads: “Pregnancy predisposes to thrombosis, therefore women should discuss with their healthcare professional whether the benefits of having the vaccine outweigh the risks for them.”

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed, chairman of the Commission on Human Medicines, reiterated the MHRA’s advice.

He said the current data suggests expectant mums should carry on consulting healthcare professionals before booing a vaccine appointment.
