The Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) and other pregnancy experts recommend that pregnant and lactating people be vaccinated against COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend vaccination for all people aged 5 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future. Vaccination is the best way to reduce the risks of COVID-19 infection and COVID-related complications for both you and your baby.
