COVID-19 & Pregnancy

Pregnancy increases a person’s risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and studies show it leads to an increase in complications and mortality.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, getting a COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy can protect you from severe illness from COVID-19. Both the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine recommend vaccination for pregnant and lactating women. Talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of getting a vaccine.
