Dr Sarah Stock speaks to the BBC about pregnant women receiving the Covid-19 vaccine

CRH’s Dr Sarah Stock was asked by the BBC to give her expert opinion on pregnant women being vaccinated against Covid-19.

It is airing on BBC News through the day on 10.06.21, and on Radio Scotland.

The news segment also features two pregnant women case studies and discusses the first Covid-19 vaccine study for women who are pregnant which has recently been launched in the UK – with Edinburgh playing a key role in the research.

“Catching Covid-19 in pregnancy can have serious consequences for mothers and their babies.  This is an important study as it will not only help us understand how best to protect the mothers and babies of today, but also how we can prepare to protect those in the future.”
