After the COVID-19 vaccination you do not have to wait any particular length of time before getting pregnant. We recommend you get a COVID-19 vaccination if you are trying for a baby.
Vaccination is recommended for all those who are pregnant from 12 weeks of pregnancy (i.e. from the 2nd trimester). In principle, vaccination is also possible at an earlier stage of pregnancy. Some countries recommend it in the first weeks of pregnancy (UK, United States). The mRNA vaccines are safe during pregnancy. Over a million pregnant women have already been vaccinated worldwide.
During pregnancy there is an increased risk of experiencing a severe form of COVID-19. Antibodies produced as a result of the vaccination can also protect the baby.
In the first six months after the birth, women have a lower risk of severe illness requiring hospitalisation. The vaccination is also recommended during breastfeeding. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should receive an mRNA vaccine.
