Yes, CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant now or in the future. Data show that pregnant and recently pregnant people are more likely than non-pregnant people to get severely ill if they are infected with COVID-19, and highly contagious variants make it even more important to get vaccinated. 

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and other leading health organizations are “strongly urging” anyone who is pregnant or planning to become pregnant to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 

If you are pregnant, talk to your healthcare provider to learn more about COVID-19 vaccination.
