Medical experts say there’s no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, influence your chances of getting pregnant. That’s despite a myth suggesting otherwise.

In Pfizer’s study, a similar number of women became pregnant in the group given the vaccine as in the group given dummy shots. U.S. health officials and obstetrician groups recommend the vaccines to help prevent COVID-19 during pregnancy, when risks for severe illness from the virus are elevated.
