COVID19 Vaccine Considerations for Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women

Many of our patients have been asking about the safety and effectiveness of the COVID19 vaccine in pregnancy and breastfeeding.  Unfortunately, there is no data from the clinical trials about the safety of the COVID19 vaccine for pregnant and breastfeeding women because these populations were not included in the studies (which is very common for new vaccines and medications).

The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine has issued a statement with some guidance to women who are currently pregnant, planning pregnancy, or breastfeeding who are considering the COVID19 vaccine.  Click here to read the article.

We know that information about the safety of the COVID-19 vaccine will continue to grow and change as more people are vaccinated. We will continue to share updates with you when they become available.

If you are pregnant, postpartum or breastfeeding AND have already received the COVID-19 vaccine, we would encourage you to participate in an online registry so that more information may be collected about the vaccine in this population.  Click here to find out more.
