Pregnancy and the COVID-19 Vaccine

Are you pregnant or planning to become pregnant? Pregnant people are at higher risk for getting very sick with COVID-19 compared to people who are not pregnant.

Pregnant people who contract COVID-19 are at risk of pregnancy complications such as preterm birth, high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, death, and stillbirth.

CDC research following more than 46,000 vaccinated pregnant individuals has shown that COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are safe and protective for you and your baby.
