The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) have recently released statements about the COVID vaccine in pregnant and lactating women as well as women planning pregnancy.

Summary Of The Recommendations

  • Studies have demonstrated that pregnancy is a risk factor for severe COVID disease.
  • Pregnant and lactating women were not included in the COVID vaccine trials.
  • The COVID vaccine is an mRNA vaccine that does not contain live virus.
    The vaccine should not be withheld from women who meet criteria based on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) who are planning to conceive, undergoing fertility treatment, currently pregnant or breast feeding.
  • All patients, regardless of vaccination status, should continue prevention measures including hand washing, wearing a mask and social distancing.
