Third COVID-19 vaccine dose during pregnancy does not pose any significant risk to pregnant individuals or their newborns

A CITF-funded study, published in BMJ Medicine, reported that pregnant individuals who received a third COVID-19 vaccine dose (first booster dose) during pregnancy had no increased risk of adverse pregnancy, fetal, and neonatal outcomes compared to those who did not receive a third dose. This study was led by Dr. Deshayne Fell (University of Ottawa and CHEO Research Institute).
