A local consultant obstetrician believe partners must play an active role in getting more pregnant women to sign up for Covid vaccines.
The HSE confirmed this week that an increasing number of pregnant women are presenting for Covid vaccination.
It's one of the groups they've been targeting as part of an ongoing campaign.
Overall, Ireland continues to have the highest vaccination rate in the EU, with over 92 per cent of adults fully protected.
A pop up clinic for women will operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week at Mullingar hospital.
Professor Chris Fitzpatrick is Clinical Lead for the vaccination programme for the Dublin Midlands Hospital Group and a Consultant Obstetrician who works at Mullingar Hospital.
