Our doctors were among the first fertility physicians to receive the vaccine in Florida and the southeast. We care to protect you and your loved ones as you plan for your most important stage of your life.

With the Covid-19 vaccine a reality, many patients are asking whether to get the vaccine or not. We put together a few answers on the topic for you below:

    1. Can those who are pregnant receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
      When patients ask us the same question about any other vaccine, we advise them to follow the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). In this case as well, leading experts say the vaccine should not be withheld from women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
    2. How about those who are nursing? Can the virus be transmitted to your toddler or infant through the vaccine?
      We recommend that mothers consult their health providers for advice, but in our opinion nursing is still recommended for lactating women even if they have received the vaccine. We have no evidence to suggest that the vaccine transmits the virus to the toddler or infant through nursing.
    3. Does the COVID-19 vaccine affect fertility?
      We have no evidence to suggest that Covid-19 vaccine impacts fertility in any negative way.
    4. Is there an increased miscarriage rate and/or risk?
      No, there is no evidence to show an increased rate of miscarriage and/ or risk in pregnant women who are infected with COVID-19, and same for the COVID vaccine.
