COVID-19 vaccine guidance: As the US begins distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has recommended that pregnant and lactating patients still be allowed to decide, with their doctors, whether to receive the vaccine.

You can find ACOG’s complete overview of currently available COVID-19 vaccines & guidance on use in pregnant & lactating patients here.
