COVID Vaccine & Pregnancy

I am pregnant. Am I eligible for the vaccine?

Pregnancy is considered a high-risk health condition according to the CDC and falls in the 1b phase for eligibility. Please check here for your county’s phase eligibility.

We want to start a family. I heard the vaccine can possibly hurt our chances or hurt the baby. Is this true?

Women undergoing fertility treatment or planning to get pregnant should be encouraged to receive vaccination if they are eligible. Since the vaccine is not a live virus, there is no reason to delay pregnancy attempts because of vaccination administration or to defer treatment until the second dose has been administered.

I am pregnant, and I am afraid the vaccine will hurt my baby. Can this happen?

Currently, there are limited data available on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines for people who are pregnant. Speak with your healthcare provider to help you make an informed decision. However, based on how mRNA vaccines work, experts believe they are unlikely to cause harm to women who are pregnant or to the fetus.

The CDC, American College of OB-GYN, and the Society of Maternal Fetal Medicine all state that COVID-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant individuals, those planning to get pregnant, or those on fertility treatments who are otherwise eligible for vaccination. To date, the CDC is monitoring approximately 15,000 pregnant women who have received the COVID-19 vaccines. Learn more: Vaccinating Pregnant and Lactating Patients Against COVID-19

Note: Pregnant women with COVID-19 have a higher risk for severe illness, including death, than age-matched controls.
