COVID VACCINE RECOMMENDED IN PREGNANCY
If you are currently pregnant, you are eligible for vaccination and the hospital will be in touch about your PFIZER vaccine. Please see the link below for information on the vaccine in pregnancy. There is a risk of complications with COVID for both mother and baby in pregnancy and vaccination is recommended.
We are completing our over 70s vaccines and very high risk groups and are working our way through cohort 7 now . This includes those between 18-59 with chronic neurological conditions, BMI over 35, chronic kidney disease, COPD,diabetes, severe asthma (requiring repeated oral steroids) cystic fibrosis, cancer and immunosuppression. More details can be found on link below. If you feel you are eligible and have not been contacted, please get in touch.

Our phones are extremely busy. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, date of birth and address. We will get back to everyone but please be patient. Please specify if it is urgent and you are very unwell.
Please use trusted sources like the HSE or WHO to get your information.
BABY VACCINATIONS ARE CONTINUING AS NORMAL
Please be sure not to miss your appointment for baby vaccinations. Babies are more at risk of meningitis and other diseases than corona virus. If vaccination levels fall , we risk a measles or other outbreak. The waiting room is empty and when you attend , you will be seen quickly or advised to return to your car until the nurse is ready. After vaccination, you will be advised to stay in your car for 10 minutes to ensure your baby has no reaction. If this pandemic reminds us of one thing, it is the huge protection that vaccination has given us to deadly diseases.
To minimise attendances, we are carrying out 6 weeks checks on the same day as the 2 month vaccines. We are available for telephone consultations and can try and resolve issues by phone where possible.
