Did you know COVID during pregnancy poses an elevated risk of severe complications? Maternal severe illness, ICU admissions, mechanical ventilation, and even the unthinkable death. The stakes are high, especially for those with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, increasing age, and cardiovascular disease. Now, here’s the game-changer: COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy. A goldmine of data shows it’s safe and a superhero in mitigating risks. There is no evidence of adverse effects on moms or little ones, and the safety record is rock-solid.
Concerned about effectiveness? Fear not! The COVID-19 vaccines are equally potent in pregnant and non-pregnant individuals of similar age. It’s a level playing field for preventing infections and hospitalizations.
