COVID-19 & Pregnancy

Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Ana G. Cepin, MD explains what we know about pregnancy and the COVID vaccines.

So, we know that with pregnancy COVID can just be a lot more severe. And so, women who are pregnant have a higher risk of severe COVID, and a higher risk of needing hospitalization and ultimately a higher risk of death from COVID. And so, certainly it is something that can be very risky in pregnancy. And so, we want to be able to avoid that as much as we can for pregnant women.
