Can I get the vaccine if I am pregnant?

PUBLISHED 21 June 2021
Vaccine Q&A,

Pregnant women should get vaccinated when benefits outweigh the risks.

We do not have enough data on the safety of vaccines for pregnant women. However, data from the United States, where around 90 000 pregnant women have been vaccinated with messenger RNA (Mrna) vaccines like the Pfizer-BionTech and Modena vaccines have not raised any safety concerns.

Countries have different guidelines based on their own situations. In countries where pregnant women can choose to get the vaccine, health workers should help them to understand the risks and benefits so they can make an informed decision.

If you are unsure, please ask your doctor.
