COVID-19 Vaccine and Pregnancy

People who are pregnant can get the COVID-19 vaccine.

  • We know that pregnant people are at a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease compared to non-pregnant people.
  • Based on how the COVID-19 vaccines work in the body, medical researchers do not think that the vaccines are a risk for people who are pregnant. But, we do not have much data on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant people.
  • If you are pregnant, you can choose to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • You may want to talk with your health care provider to help you decide whether to get vaccinated, but it is not required.

The COVID-19 vaccine is safe for people who want to have a baby one day.

    If you are trying to become pregnant now or want to get pregnant in the future, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine when one is available to you.

    We do not have any data to say that COVID-19 vaccination causes any problems with pregnancy, including the development of the placenta.

    There is no evidence that fertility problems are a side effect of any COVID-19 vaccine.

Pfizer Covid-19 Boosters

Booster dose recommendations are in from the CDC. The following groups should get a booster dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after the second dose:

• people 65 years and older;

• residents in long-term care settings; and

• people ages 50 to 64, with certain underlying medical conditions (CDC: People with Certain Medical Conditions).

The following groups may get a booster dose of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine at least six months after the second dose, if the personal benefits for them outweigh the personal risks:

• people ages 18 to 49 who are at high risk for severe COVID-19 due to certain underlying medical conditions (see hyperlink above); and

• people ages 18 to 64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of where they live or work.

These recommendations are only for those who received the Pfizer vaccine in their primary series. No authorizations or recommendations on a booster dose for those who received Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine are available at this time.
