Q: Can I get the COVID-19 vaccine if I am pregnant?
A: The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccines for all people over 12 years old including those who are pregnant, breastfeeding and trying to get pregnant. Pregnant women are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective during pregnancy. There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems in women or men. See CDC for more information.
