According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines are recommended for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or who might become pregnant in the future. Pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely to get severely ill than non-pregnant people. Getting the vaccine can protect you from severe illness.

Recent reports have shown that pregnant women who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 have antibodies during their third trimester and pass the antibodies on to their foetuses, which could help protect them after birth.
