I am pregnant or wish to become pregnant, can I receive a COVID-19 vaccine?


A COVID-19 infection poses an increased risk to the health of both the mother and her unborn child. Therefore, the Belgian Superior Health Council recommends priority vaccination of pregnant women with a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer and Moderna).

As the vaccine does not affect fertility, women who are trying to become pregnant may be vaccinated. If you become pregnant after vaccination with a first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you can also receive the second dose of the same COVID-19 vaccine.
