The Lancashire Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are inviting pregnant women across Preston and Lancashire to participate in a study evaluating Covid-19 vaccines in pregnancy.


The trial will compare vaccines that are currently being used for the UK vaccination programme, as well as new vaccines as they are approved.

Low-risk pregnant women aged 18-45 years-old and between 13-34 weeks gestation can be considered for enrolment onto the study.

This study will provide vital information about which Covid-19 vaccine schedule works best in pregnancy, and the study will look at which interval between doses best protects women and their babies.

Participation involves visits throughout pregnancy and up to one year after delivery. Participants will be reimbursed for travel expenses.
