Vaccinating Pregnant and Lactating Women

An American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) practice advisory titled, "Vaccinating Pregnant and Lactating Patients Against COVID-19" (last updated 12/21/2020) recommends, in part:
  • COVID-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant individuals who meet criteria for vaccination based on ACIP-recommended priority groups.
  • COVID-19 vaccines should be offered to lactating individuals similar to non-lactating individuals when they meet criteria for receipt of the vaccine based on prioritization groups outlined by the ACIP.
