Vaccinations and Pregnancy

Some vaccinations are recommended before you become pregnant, during pregnancy or right after delivery. Vaccines recommended before pregnancy include the chickenpox and rubella (German measles) vaccines. These illnesses can harm you and your baby during pregnancy.  Having the right vaccinations at the right time can help keep you and your baby healthy, so be sure your vaccinations are up to date before you get pregnant. 

At this time, vaccinations for COVID-19 are recommended for women planning to become pregnant and women who are pregnant as they are at a much higher risk of severe illness due to COVID-19 and complications in their pregnancy and death if they do contract COVID-19.
