IS IT SAFE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN TO GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE?

While we have not yet specifically tested COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women, there is no reason to suspect that the COVID-19 vaccines currently being tested would be of risk to the mother or her baby. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) has recommended; “that COVID-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant individuals who meet criteria for vaccination based on ACIP-recommended priority groups”. Additionally; “COVID-19 vaccines should be offered to lactating individuals similar to non-lactating individuals”. COVID-19 vaccine testing in pregnant women is planned and likely will start in the spring of this year.
