Covid-19 vaccine and pregnant women

Information on Covid-19 vaccine and pregnancy

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation advises that all pregnant women should be offered the Covid-19 vaccine just as the rest of the population. 

A pregnant Nottinghamshire woman has spoken about why she chose to have the Covid-19 vaccine and her experience in a bid to encourage other pregnant women to consider getting the jab too. Read Olivia’s story of having the vaccine during pregnancy.

If you would like to hear and learn more about vaccine safety, take part in an upcoming 30-minute webinar by NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG. The vaccination in pregnancy webinar will take place via Zoom on Monday 5 July at 6pm. During the webinar, you will receive an update on the programme and have the opportunity to ask any questions.

Still following Step 3, so what does that mean for me?

Step 3 remains in place

Covid-19 Guidance


The difference between lateral flow and PCR testing

Testing for coronavirus

Testing is a vital part of our defence against Covid-19, but which test should you get and when?

Rapid lateral flow testing is for when you don’t have symptoms and they should be completed as part of the routine twice weekly testing. It takes around 30minutes for a result to be processed.

PCR test is for when you have symptoms of Covid-19. You can take a test at home or at a test site, and the results can take up to 3 days to arrive (but most arrive the next day).
