COVID-19 vaccination advice for pregnant women – 9 June 2021
The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists recommend that pregnant women are offered the Pfizer vaccine at any stage of pregnancy.
This is because the risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 is significantly higher for pregnant women and their unborn baby.
As with other DHBs we are ensuring that groups most likely to come into contact with COVID, and those who are the most vulnerable are offered the vaccine first.
Includes people working in border roles - at the airport, port and managed quarantine hotels - and their families.
Includes our frontline healthcare workforce such as doctors, nurses, hospital orderlies etc.
Group Two also includes our vulnerable people, prioritised kuia and kaumaatua, as well as people living in our Counties Manukau community who are at higher risk such as those over the age of 65 or have an underlying health issue.
Includes people living in the rest of New Zealand who are at higher risk such as those over the age of 65 or have an underlying health issue.
Includes everyone else over the age of 16.
