Pfizer is the preferred COVID19 vaccine for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning pregnancy.

COVID-19 vaccination and pregnancy

We think it is very important that all patients are informed about the vaccine rollout, so that you can make the best decision for your health. As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout has begun, you might be wondering whether it is safe for you to get the vaccine if you are pregnant.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has approved 2 vaccines for use in Australia – the Pfizer and the AstraZeneca vaccines. Both have been shown to prevent particularly severe illness from COVID-19. The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) have recommended that pregnant women can get the Pfizer vaccine at any stage of their pregnancy.
