Whats are the recommandations to follow for the Covid-19 vaccination?
Should she get vaccinated during pregnancy? If yes…when? Witch term or month?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Post-COVID Recovery & COVID-19 group.

Hello Julie, this is a question for the pregnant person to discuss with their obstetrician. Together they need to weigh the risks and benefits. How far along is the pregnancy?

Hi @juliepoissant, I agree with @loribmt that she should discuss the pros and cons of vaccine vs COVID infection with her doctor.

For more information on Mayo Clinic’s recommendation, please see this information:

– Can I get a COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy? https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccine-if-pregnant

“ If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s recommended that you get a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can protect you from severe illness due to COVID-19. Vaccination can also help pregnant women build antibodies that might protect their babies.
COVID-19 vaccines don’t cause infection with the COVID-19 virus, including in pregnant women or their babies. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19.
While further research is needed, early findings suggests that getting an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy poses no serious risks for pregnant women who were vaccinated or their babies.
Keep in mind that the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines don’t alter your DNA or cause genetic changes. In addition, vaccines that use the same viral vector as the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine have been given to pregnant women in each trimester of pregnancy in clinical trials. No harmful effects were found.
Pregnant women may also receive a COVID-19 booster shot. If you have concerns, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits.”
