Getting vaccinated against COVID-19

4. Vaccination and pregnancy

Vaccination against COVID-19 is strongly recommended for pregnant women because it protects them and the child to be born.

Pregnant women are more likely to become seriously ill from COVID-19 and of experiencing complications during their pregnancy than women who are not pregnant.

Data show that vaccination is safe for both the mother and the foetus. Vaccination has no known effect on pregnancy or fertility. Based on the views of various international expert groups and the data available on vaccination during pregnancy, vaccination against COVID-19 is recommended, from the 2nd term onwards, for all pregnant women who wish to be vaccinated. Vaccination is also possible during the first pregnancy term and can be done if requested by the pregnant woman. 

Vaccination with mRNA vaccines (Pfizer/BioNTech's Comirnaty® vaccine and Moderna's Spikevax® vaccine) is recommended for all pregnant or breastfeeding women regardless of their health status. 

Vaccination is recommended for breatfeeding women or women who are planning a pregnancy.
