Is it safe for me to get a COVID-19 vaccine if I would like to have a baby one day?

YES!   If you are trying to become pregnant now or want to get pregnant in the future, you may receive a COVID-19 vaccine. There is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination increases infertility or the risk of miscarriage.  In addition, there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination causes any problems during pregnancy, including problems with the development of the placenta. Like all vaccines, scientists are studying COVID-19 vaccines carefully for side effects now and will continue to study them for many years. 

 

In April, a rare, but serious, side effect was identified in a small number of women of reproductive age-related to the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.  Given the availability of two other vaccines, the FDA and CDC have encouraged women younger than 50 years of age to be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after vaccination with J&J vaccine.
