SOGC Statement on COVID-19 Vaccination in Pregnancy

Original Statement: December 18, 2020

Reaffirmed: March 12, 2021 

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) has released a statement on COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy.

The SOGC acknowledges the need for guidance related to the COVID-19 vaccine and pregnancy and during lactation. We recognize the difficulty facing women and their health care providers at this time, due to the absence of clinical trials that can support evidence-informed recommendations about the COVID-19 vaccine for pregnant and breastfeeding populations.

Please note that information related to COVID-19, the impact of the disease on pregnancy and data related to COVID-19 vaccines in development are rapidly evolving. Therefore, the information contained in this statement is subject to change as further evidence becomes available.
