COVID-19 Vaccination for people who are pregnant.

While you are pregnant, especially in the later stages of pregnancy
(8th-month of pregnancy to delivery), it is said that you are more vulnerable to developing severe illness with COVID-19 when infected.

Outcomes of the COVID-19 vaccinations administered to pregnant
people outside of Japan revealed two things:

  • COVID-19 vaccine would help protect pregnant people and babies against COVID-19.
  • Vaccinations reduce the risk of developing severe illness from
    COVID-19-related complications

People who are currently pregnant can get vaccinated against COVID-19, regardless of what months’ they are pregnant.

People who are breastfeeding can also get vaccinated.  

It is also said that about 80% of infection with COVID-19 in pregnant women are passed on by their partners. Having a partner inject the vaccine will protect the pregnant person.

If you are pregnant or your partner is pregnant, please consider getting vaccinated proactively.
