Vaccines now available ! Pregnancy is now part of Phase Two Vaccine Initiative
Dear RCC Patients,
As of April 23rd, 2021, pregnant women are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Pregnancy is now part of the Phase Two Vaccine Initiative. Pregnancy falls under the ‘Health Conditions ‘at risk’ category.
There are certain factors that can put you at greater risk from COVID-19 while pregnant. These include:
- Being at the front lines or in a community outbreak situation
- Age > 35 years
- Obesity (BMI >30)
- Pre-pregnancy high blood pressure
- Pre-pregnancy diabetes
- Heart disease
Vaccine appointments can be booked through the Public Health Unit immunization clinics, through the provincial call centre at 1-888-999-6488 or you can also pre-register for the vaccination using the Trillium Health Partners website: http://trilliumhealthpartners.ca/covid-19/A/vaccine.html#starthere
Individuals will be eligible for vaccination with a 16 week (112 day) second dose interval presently.
For those considering the COVID-19 vaccination, our current advice at RCC is to educate yourself with the resources provided below at the end of this update. That being said, the position statement from the SOGC gives specific recommendations to pregnant women who are at high risk of COVID- 19 exposure and complications – this should be considered when contemplating vaccination so an individual can make an informed choice. In making a decision about whether to get vaccinated, each individual should weigh the risk vs. benefit. Your doctors and nurses at RCC are here to help you navigate these decisions.

Dr.Dan Nayot from RCC joined Mary Wong to discuss Chromosomal PGT-A Testing
When you are doing IVF, you want to know that you are doing everything you can to increase your chances of conceiving a healthy baby. One of the ways fertility clinics say they may improve your chance of a successful pregnancy is through chromosomal testing of your embryos known as PGT-A or Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidies or CCS (Comprehensive Chromosome Screening). As much as it sounds awesome, it does not guarantee a baby. Fertility Doctor @dan.nayot talks about the pros and cons of PGT-A so you can see if this is something that you want to sign up for.
