COVID-19 vaccines safe and effective for pregnant, lactating women

[WCCO-TV & KSTP-TV, March 28, 2021] A new study published this month in the American Journal of Gynecology went over the findings of how the COVID-19 vaccine affects pregnant and lactating women.

“If you read between the lines, clearly they're trying to encourage women to get the vaccine — but they don't actually say that," said Dr. Frank Rhame, infectious disease expert at Allina Health. "They say it should be discussed between you and your physician.”

Rhame says with most vaccines, any adverse side effects usually show up within six weeks, and so far, there don’t seem to be any red flags with the participants.
