FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I get the vaccine if I am pregnant? Yes. Pregnant women are more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19 and are at increased risk of preterm birth if you get COVID-19. There is growing evidence that supports the use of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy.
What if I want to get pregnant? Taking the vaccine protects your health and will not affect your chances of becoming pregnant.
What if I’m breastfeeding? COVID-19 vaccination of the mother does not pose a risk to their breastfeeding infants. Research shows that vaccinated women who breastfeed can pass COVID-19 protection to their babies.
