Q: How safe is the COVID-19 vaccine? Should I get it if I am trying to conceive?

A: Because COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are not composed of live virus, they are not thought to cause an increased risk of infertility, first or second trimester loss, stillbirth, or congenital anomalies. It should be noted that pregnant and breastfeeding women were excluded from the initial phase III trials of these two vaccines, so specific safety data in these populations are not yet available and further studies are planned.

Because of this lack of data, we understand there are some organizations have chosen to recommend not to get vaccinated when trying to get pregnant and currently pregnant, we believe the risk-benefit ratio favors vaccination given the severity of COVID19 and its ability to be transmitted easily.
