Information about COVID-19 vaccines and pregnancy
To help answer some common questions on COVID-19 vaccines, pregnancy and infertility, the WA Government has teamed up with popular medical commentator Dr Karl on this series of You’ve Got Questions videos.
For more information on receiving your COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy, see the guide for pregnant women (external website) or speak to your GP.
Can the COVID-19 vaccines cause infertility?
Dr Karl explains how this myth came about, and why the COVID-19 vaccines definitely do not cause infertility.
Can I get vaccinated if I am pregnant?
Pregnant women have a higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. The vaccine protects the health of both them and their unborn child – therefore it is recommended pregnant women receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
