We are grateful for the thorough research that went in to the new vaccine against the coronovirus. We recognize that the quick rollout did not leave time to investigate every patient population.
This leaves many questions, especially for those who are pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant, or are lactating.
We have gathered resources from trusted medical organizations for you to read to help you make your decision. As always, your May-Grant provider will be happy to discuss what will be best for you and your baby.
Here are the resources:
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist (ACOG) Practice Advisory for Pregnant and Lactating Women and the COVID-19 Vaccine
American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Clinical Recommendations for COVID-19 Vaccine
Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine (SMFM) Statement on COVID-19 Vaccine in Pregnancy
You may consider registering with the CDC program called V-Safe. This tracks reactions and side effects to the vaccine and will also remind you when it is time for your second dose.
