So far, only limited information is available on the effects of vaccination in pregnant women. However, limited data from studies have shown no adverse effects on the fetus and the course of pregnancy

Pregnant women can be vaccinated for the following reasons:

  1. Medical conditions and risk of serious Covid-19, such as: Age greater than 35 years, obesity (BMI greater than 35 kg/m2), diabetes mellitus, hypertension, major chronic and cancer diseases, bronchial asthma.
  2. Work in health care and health services
  3. Based on age indication

Timing of vaccination:

  • Vaccination in pregnancy should be planned after the 12th week of pregnancy, i.e. any time from 13 weeks of pregnancy onwards
  • If pregnancy is detected after the first dose of the vaccine, it is advisable to administer the second dose after the 12th week of pregnancy
  • Vaccination is also possible immediately after delivery
  • In the context of Intrauterine Fertilization (IVF), delaying the administration of the vaccine for a few days after egg retrieval (OPU) may be considered due to the possibility of adverse reactions after vaccination

It is not necessary to perform a pregnancy test before vaccinating women of childbearing age. For women planning to become pregnant, it is not necessary to delay pregnancy after vaccination.
