The COVID-19 vaccines are strongly recommended for people who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or might become pregnant in the future!
One of the best ways to protect yourself and others is to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Research has shown that the vaccine is safe and effective in protecting people from serious illness and hospitalization due to COVID-19.
March of Dimes is committed to educating and advocating for life-saving immunizations that keep moms and babies healthy.
Unfortunately, many children in the U.S. don’t have access to routine immunizations. The vaccine gap disproportionately affects kids who are uninsured, Black, Hispanic or living below the poverty level.
The COVID-19 pandemic has only made access harder, and stopped kids from getting their series of safe, recommended vaccines. We’re determined to #ClosetheGap—and you can help.
FOR MOMS AND FAMILIES
Help Protect Your Baby with Vaccines
Catch-Up on Missed Appointments and Vaccines for Your Baby
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many children missed check-ups and recommended childhood vaccinations. CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that every child continues to receive recommended vaccinations. Talk to your health care provider or local health department about getting children caught up on well-child visits and routine childhood vaccinations.
