For the first time in the UK, a Covid-19 vaccine study for pregnant women has launched. It seeks to learn about the safety and effectiveness of the Pfizer Maternal Covid-19 Vaccine for all expectant mothers and their babies.
A local Covid-19 research study will compare an investigational (study) vaccine against a placebo to see if the study vaccine can prevent Covid-19.
This national study is led by the National Institute for Health Research. Managing the study for the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, is the OSPREA Team of research midwives and nurses who are part of the Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health.
