Pregnancy is an exciting time that also comes with many questions about how to ensure everyone is healthy, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is a critical step to foster a healthy pregnancy, some people may have questions about the effects of the vaccine on their pregnancy. In this webinar from the American Hospital Association in partnership with American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, hospital leaders, clinicians and experts from the CDC discuss how health care professionals can work with their patients and communities to build trust in the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant people.
