Pregnant patients are more likely to have serious illness from COVID-19 and are at risk of developing pregnancy complications as a result. The vaccine is very effective in reducing the risk of infection. While pregnant and breastfeeding individuals were not included in COVID-19 vaccine studies, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology does recommend that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding be offered the vaccine to prevent serious illness. Although there is still not enough information to specifically recommend the vaccine during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as of now, thousands of pregnant women have received the vaccine and no serious safety issues have been identified. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should discuss the vaccine with your doctor so you can make the decision that is right for you. #spreadfactsnotCOVID19 See MoreSee Less
