Q: Will the vaccine affect my existing medical conditions?

A: No, the vaccine will not impact your current medical conditions. In fact, if you have underlying medical conditions, you may be at higher risk of having severe complications from COVID-19. As a result, getting the vaccine which, after both doses offer approximately 95% protection from COVID 19, will lower your overall risk of illness.

Q: Should I get the COVID19 vaccine?

A: While the COVID vaccine is new and there is a lot we do not know about it, the risks of developing severe illness from COVID are higher for pregnant woman.  In severe cases, pregnant women with COVID are more likely to need ICU care and/or a ventilator than women with COVID who are not pregnant.  The COVID-19 vaccine is made without live virus.  In previous vaccines that used a similar design (i.e., those that also did not contain live virus), getting vaccinated was not associated with develo

Q: Can I get COVID from the vaccine?

Q: What do we know about the COVID-19 Vaccine and Pregnancy?

A: We understand it can be confusing when respected physicians or their organizations come to different conclusions. However, the virus and what we know about treatments and vaccines are all rapidly changing. As we learn more about COVID-19 care and management, recommendations will evolve. In reality, currently, there is little data on which to evaluate the impact of the vaccine or the disease on pregnant individuals. Also, given the challenges of enrolling pregnant individuals in clinical trial

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.
