Jacqueline Dunkley Bent, UK’s Chief Obstetrician, wrote to GPs and midwives urging them to encourage pregnant women to get vaccinated as new data show an increase in the Delta variant being hospitalized with viral symptoms on Friday (30/7).
He called on pregnant women to protect themselves and their babies.
The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (RCOG) and the Royal College of Midwives have also recommended vaccination of pregnant women.
The UK has recommended vaccination of pregnant women since April but acceptance is very low compared to the general population.
