Following the Government announcement on 4th January of a third COVID-19 National Lockdown, we want to reassure all our patients that the Agora Clinic remains open and continues to offer all investigations and treatments in our COVID-safe environment. In his statement, the Prime Minister has confirmed that all medical treatments will continue as normal.
We continue to monitor carefully all guidance published by the HFEA, The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and Public Health England.
Our mission is to ensure we minimise any risk of COVID to our staff and patients and their future babies and also to listen to your queries and concerns so that we can support and guide you in your all your decisions. The arrival of the two new COVID vaccines in the last few weeks has prompted a lot of questions from the TTC community.
Currently the key issues facing patients regarding the COVID vaccine are:
- Should I have the vaccine if it is offered to me?
- Should I delay my fertility treatment if I am offered the vaccine?
We believe in advising every patient/couple according to their individual circumstances so that they can make an informed choice and are fully aware of the pros and cons of that choice. Below we have set out the current guidance from the key bodies, which we will update as guidance changes. We have followed this with our own guidance which we will of course always discuss on a one to one basis with our patients as we understand everyone’s situation is different.
