Yes, you should get vaccinated if you are trying to conceive. There is no evidence that any vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine, affect fertility in women or men. Pregnant people who get infected by COVID-19 have a higher risk of hospitalization, admittance to the intensive care unit (ICU), and may require ventilation, which means needing special equipment to breathe.

Getting vaccinated now will protect you from COVID-19 while you are pregnant, as well as pass along protective antibodies to your child when they are born.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, might become pregnant in the future, or breastfeeding get vaccinated and stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines.
