A message from your providers at Nash Ob-Gyn:
We recommend the COVID vaccination for all patients, including those who want to be pregnant, are pregnant, and women who are currently breastfeeding. We want the best for you and your family: wash your hands, wear a mask, social distance, and be vaccinated.
Our support of vaccination for all is based on guidance from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine, American Academy of Pediatrics, and American College of Nurse Midwives. All organizations issued a joint statement on August 9th. Their guidance is based on data from tens of thousands of reporting individuals that showed COVID-19 vaccination is both safe and effective when administered during pregnancy. The same data have been equally reassuring when it comes to infants born to vaccinated individuals. Also, COVID-19 vaccines have no impact on fertility.
Patients planning to become pregnant and those already pregnant should feel confident in choosing vaccination to protect themselves, their infants, and their families.
Nash UNC’s COVID Walk-In Vaccine Clinic is open Monday-Friday 8 am – 4 pm (and Thursday until 6 pm), offering booster shots for all & pediatric vaccines (ages 5 and up). NO WAIT, NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED. Remember, vaccines are free and do not require insurance or a photo ID.
If you have questions or would like to make an appointment for a specific time, call Nash UNC's Community Vaccination Line at (252) 962-8624 or schedule online at YourShot.org. For answers to frequently asked questions, please visit NashUNCHealthCare.org/Vaccine.
