The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) in the UK has now advised that pregnant women can be offered the COVID-19 vaccine. The Government says that this change to the guidance comes after data from the United States shows that 90,000 pregnant women have been vaccinated with mRNA vaccines (such as the Pfizer vaccine we are using in Gibraltar) without any specific safety concerns being raised.
The Government has announced that Gibraltar’s vaccination programme against the virus that causes COVID-19 has now entered its final phase. As at Sunday 18th April, 35,901 people have received their first dose of the vaccine in Gibraltar with 30,811 people having received both doses, making a total of 66,712 vaccinations given through the three vaccination centres at ERS, St Bernard’s Hospital and the public vaccination centre at the ICC.

The GSD have issued a statement calling the Government’s recent housing press release a “smokescreen”.
The GSD says that as result of the its press release last week and “significant public pressure”, the GHA has now confirmed that it will increase the availability of face to face appointments as from today.
The GSD has said that it is now clear that the Government are “simply playing a political numbers game” rather than considering the rights or wishes of all families or individuals. The party says the Government have apparently calculated that the issue of unvaccinated individuals visiting their family members in hospital or ERS affects a minority of individuals they are “shutting their eyes” to the problem and are “abandoning the pleas for help” by those individuals.
