Pregnancy and COVID-19 Vaccines
March 5, 2021
While the COVID-19 vaccination program is extending globally, we have many questions regarding the vaccines’ safety, durability, and efficacy against variants. One of the important safety questions is the effects of COVID-19 vaccines on pregnant women as clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines were conducted without their participation. Are the vaccines safe and effective for pregnant women? What about the effects of vaccination on the fetus? Such questions should obviously be balanced with the risk of disease severity for infected pregnant women and fetuses.
