CDC Strengthens COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendation for Pregnant Women

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has now officially recommended that people who are pregnant be vaccinated against COVID-19. This updates and strengthens their previous guidance that stated they were eligible and just suggested a conversation with their provider. Their statement reads: “COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people aged 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.”
