Is it safe to get the covid-19 vaccine if I’m trying to fall pregnant?

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) highly recommends that women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant receive the covid-19 vaccine.

Due to the large volume of misinformation circulating on social media, people may fall victim to vaccine-hesitancy and become entangled in the web of wild rumours that have no scientific evidence. The issue is that vaccine hesitancy and misinformation will breed fear and when women find themselves in a situation that places doubt in their mind, especially if you are undergoing fertility treatment.

Reliable research on COVID 19 vaccine impacts on women’s fertility found there is no increased risk of side effects among pregnant women who have received their covid-19 vaccine and none of the covid-19 vaccine currently approved or under review from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) cause infertility or sterilisation.

The purpose of the vaccine, as with all other vaccines, is to help train your body to develop antibodies that will fight against the covid-19 virus. There is currently no evidence that the vaccine causes a negative impact on fertility, pregnancy, or the development of the placenta.
