Reporting from the USA: COVID-19 Vaccination Not Tied to Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes

mRNA COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy is not associated with an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, according to a study published in the June issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Kimberly K. Vesco, M.D., M.P.H., from Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Oregon, and colleagues evaluated the association between antenatal mRNA COVID-19 vaccination and risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. Analysis included 55,591 individuals with singleton pregnancies with live deliveries (June 1, 2021, to Jan. 31, 2022), with data available from eight integrated health care systems participating in the Vaccine Safety Datalink.
