Pregnant Women and Coronavirus Vaccines

Clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines haven't tested candidates in pregnant women, a common practice rooted in safety concerns.
 
But with a vaccine this badly needed, there’s also an argument that they should be included earlier to ensure all the necessary safety and efficacy data is in place as soon as a vaccine is greenlit.
 
While pregnant and breastfeeding women may not take priority when a vaccine finally arrives, it’s likely that health workers will—and among them are sure to be many women who are pregnant, whether they know it at the time or not. ­­­­­­
