The best time to get the COVID-19 vaccine if you are pregnant is right now.
The risk of getting very sick with COVID-19 and needing hospitalisation or intensive care is higher for pregnant women and their unborn baby. Vaccination is the best way to reduce these risks and protect yourself and your baby.
Getting vaccinated does not affect fertility or your chance of conceiving.
In fact, getting vaccinated before conceiving means you are likely to have protection against COVID-19 throughout your pregnancy.
