The vaccine trials did not include women who were pregnant or breastfeeding. However, the Canadian Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (SOGC), the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and public health experts in B.C. all advise that pregnant and breastfeeding women can be offered the vaccine.
If you have questions and you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant, speak to your health-care provider about COVID-19 vaccines.
The Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) is working with its regional health authority partners to administer COVID-19 vaccinations, in accordance with B.C.’s priority groups. For more information, visit the BCCDC website.
