Talk to your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns. Based on how these vaccines work, experts believe they are unlikely to pose a risk for pregnant patients. If you are pregnant, you may choose to get vaccinated when the vaccine is available to you. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (https://www.acog.org/clinical/clinical-guidance/practice-advisory/articles/2020/12/vaccinating-pregnant-and-lactating-patients-against-covid-19) recommends that COVID-19 shots be offered to pregnant people who are eligible.
Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is available here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/pregnancy.html. If you have questions about getting vaccinated, a discussion with your healthcare provider might help you make an informed decision. Pregnant people should consider several factors including their risk of contracting COVID-19, the potential risks to the fetus, the efficacy of the vaccine, and the side effects of the vaccine prior to taking the vaccine. No ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccination are known to be harmful to the parent or fetus. Pregnant people who experience fever or any other post-vaccination symptoms following a vaccination may be counseled to take acetaminophen as fever has been associated with poor pregnancy outcomes.
