With the spread of the COVID-19 virus, there are basic precautions to prevent getting sick.
Possible symptoms include*:
The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to those 6 months and older. The vaccine will help keep you from getting COVID-19. All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or might become pregnant in the future. There is currently no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines cause problems with becoming pregnant.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine while pregnant can protect you from getting very sick from COVID-19. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, COVID-19 vaccination builds antibodies that can transfer to and help protect your baby. Ask your healthcare provider about the COVID-19 vaccine.
