Vaccination against Covid 19 for pregnant and breastfeeding women is already recommended. Recommended since September 2021. Nevertheless, the need for counselling regarding basic immunisation and booster vaccination is still high. The worries of expectant parents and the fear of doing something wrong and harming the child are understandable. In the meantime, however, the data on the safety of the vaccines has improved considerably in recent months and there is still no evidence of serious pregnancy-related side effects.

The Professional Association of Gynaecologists (Berufsverband der Frauenärzte e.V.). (BVF) has published a press release in this context, to which we would like to refer here.
