The UK’s Health Security Agency says its analysis of English data shows Covid vaccines are safe in pregnancy, reinforcing international evidence.
The agency found similar rates of stillbirths and preterm births for vaccinated and unvaccinated mothers.
Its report shows no fully vaccinated pregnant women were admitted to intensive care with the virus between February and September 2021.
But just 22% of women who gave birth in August had had at least one jab.
Since mid-April, mothers-to-be have been offered the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna jab, with the second dose recommended eight weeks after the first.
