Is it safe for pregnant women to have the COVID-19 vaccine?

While there have been no trials of the current vaccines in pregnancy, there is no evidence to suggest they are harmful. However, the current guidance is that pregnant women should not routinely be given the vaccine unless they are at a high risk from COVID-19 symptoms and have discussed this with their doctor or nurse. This guidance may change. It is considered safe for the vaccine to be given if you are breastfeeding.
