The New Zealand College of Midwives recommends vaccination in every pregnancy to protect against whooping cough and influenza. Protection of babies starts during pregnancy. Pregnant women and people should also consider additional booster Covid-19 vaccinations if it has been at least 6 months since your last Covid-19 vaccination or infection. We recommend the following websites for trusted information about immunisation during pregnancy.
- Immunisation and pregnancy
- Immunisation Advisory Centre Recommended and funded vaccines during pregnancy
- Unite against Covid-19 Vaccine advice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Immunisation Advisory Centre COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy and breastfeeding
