Pregnant & Breastfeeding - Should I Get The COVID-19 Vaccine?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you’re probably wondering if it’s safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine. We speak to two consultant obstetricians and gynaecologists, Dr Charlotte Patient from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and Prof Dato’ Dr Siti Zawiah Omar from Universiti Malaya Medical Centre to find out why it’s important for pregnant and breastfeeding women to get vaccinated, especially if they are healthcare frontliners, and to answer any questions you might have.
