Last week the NHS in Devon hosted a free live webinar for anyone to attend who wanted to know more about the COVID-19 vaccine in relation to fertility, pregnancy or breastfeeding. 

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations (JCVI) has advised that pregnant and breastfeeding women should be offered COVID-19 vaccines in line with the rest of the population. So far tens of thousands of women have been vaccinated, mainly with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and the government says no safety concerns have been identified.

Women and families from across Devon joined the webinar to hear from the expert panel and ask questions. A recording was made of the webinar for people who were unable to make the live event. You can watch it on the NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) YouTube channel.
