Original Statement: December 18, 2020
Revised: January 11, 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.
Please note that the revised statement does not change the SOGC's position on the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy. The SOGC supports vaccination and the following statement outlines the considerations.
