Does vaccination harm my unborn baby?

No, vaccination does not harm your unborn baby! Many pregnant women worldwide have already had themselves vaccinated for Corona. A Corona vaccination reduces the risk of pregnancy complications and a premature birth which may otherwise be caused by a Covid-19 infection.

If you get vaccinated during pregnancy, your baby will also be better protected against Corona due to vaccination. Because if the mother produces antibodies against the Corona virus, they will be passed on to the unborn child via the umbilical cord.

You also have to bear in mind the greater probability of pregnant women becoming more severely ill with Corona than non-pregnant women. In addition, after an infection with the Corona virus, pregnant women more often develop complications during pregnancy. This is one of the reasons why the Nationale Impfgremium (NIG) recommends a Corona vaccination for pregnant women.

The first shot is recommended from the fifteenth week of pregnancy. For the third shot, the Nationale Impfgremium (NIG) currently recommends the 2nd and 3rd trimester.
