Healthcare workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Yolanda Tinajero, MD, OB/GYN affirms that the data of pregnant patients in the United States who received the COVID-19 vaccines shows there aren’t any complications when receiving the vaccine or effects to the pregnancy. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine protects you and your baby.
Patients sometimes express concerns about the safety of the vaccines and it’s really important to address that point. So, while the first studies of the very important vaccines that we’re using now did not include pregnant patients. We now have lots more data of pregnant patients in the United States who received the COVID vaccine. And what we have seen is that there aren’t any complications upon receiving the vaccine, and there’s also no significant effects to the pregnancy itself.
