  • The Public Health Agency and the Swedish Work Environment Authority disagree on whether pregnant women who are vaccinated should carry on working or not, since they may risk catching Covid-19.
  • The Swedish Work Environment Authority says that pregnant women who could be at risk of catching the virus at work should stay home after week 20 of their pregnancy, even if they are vaccinated.
  • The Public Health Agency, on the other hand, says pregnant women who have had both jabs should be allowed to work.
