Yes. According to the experts at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), if you are planning or trying to get pregnant, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine. There is no evidence suggesting that fertility problems are a side effect – in the short or long term – of any of the COVID-19 vaccines available for use in the U.S. Scientists study every vaccine carefully for side effects immediately and for years afterward.  Like all vaccines approved/authorized for use in the U.S., the COVID-19 vaccines are being studied carefully now and will continue to be monitored for safety for many years. Further, you do not need to delay getting pregnant after you get a COVID vaccine.

Some COVID-19 vaccines, such as the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, require two doses for the best protection, and boosters are recommended for many people. If you find out you are pregnant after you have the first dose of COVID vaccine, you should still get the second dose and/or booster doses. Contact your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.
