The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) continue to emphasize the importance of vaccinations for pregnant people. CDC and ACOG recommend pregnant people get vaccinated against pertussis, influenza, and COVID-19 during each pregnancy to protect themselves and to protect their baby from these infections during the first few months of life. There have been concerning declines in vaccination coverage for Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) and influenza vaccines, and low uptake of COVID-19 vaccines among pregnant people. In addition, racial and ethnic disparities persist in vaccination coverage among pregnant people.
