Infographic of COVID-19 in Pregnancy from the UK Obstetric Surveillance System

“The latest information from the UKOSS study of COVID-19 in pregnancy, released as part of an infographic summary, shows clear evidence of the real world effectiveness of vaccination against covid in pregnancy. More than 88% of women admitted with symptomatic covid-19 in pregnancy were unvaccinated. Of 230 women admitted to intensive care, only 1.7% had received a single dose of vaccine, and 0.4% had received both doses.

Data from MBRRACE-UK also shows that maternal deaths from COVID-19 continue to occur, with more deaths in the third (Delta) wave of infection that either of the two previous waves, again with most women unvaccinated. All pregnant women are recommended to have a covid vaccine by the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.”
