An important message from OFC

OFC recommends that all individuals who are pregnant or those trying to become pregnant should receive the COVID-19 vaccination; there is no evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility.

Ottawa Fertility Centre's COVID-19 Vaccination in Pregnancy Statement

OFC Statement on COVID-19 Vaccination for fertility patients

The physicians at the Ottawa Fertility Centre recommend that individuals who are pregnant or who are trying to achieve pregnancy should receive the COVID-19 vaccination. If you have any questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccinations, please speak with your physician (special considerations may apply for dosages scheduled within 2-3 days of a fertility treatment procedure).

This is supported by guidelines from the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada:

Pregnancy is a risk factor for severe COVID-19 disease. Pregnant women who contract COVID-19 are at greater risk of pregnancy complications, significantly greater risk of requiring admission to the ICU, and at greater risk of death from COVID-19.
