Coronavirus vaccine: Can pregnant women get the coronavirus vaccine?

The remaining hurdle Pfizer must cover include various safety trials which will evaluate its effects on the people who receive it.

Experts from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, one of the world’s leading medical research institutions, said data specifically for pregnant women would not emerge immediately.

Writing in a Q&A, Ruth Karron, Ruth Faden, and Carleigh Krubiner – leaders of the Pregnancy Research Ethics for Vaccines, Epidemics, and New Technologies (PREVENT) – talked about what a covid vaccine would mean for pregnant women.

They said: “When the very first vaccine becomes available, it is unlikely that there will be evidence yet from trials including pregnant women.”
