COVID-19 Vaccination for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Individuals

The Nova Scotia Vaccine Expert Panel has updated resources for care providers to use with pregnant and breastfeeding individuals to guide discussion about COVID-19 vaccination. This information is specific to adult immunization.

There are 2 documents:

  • Counselling document: "I'm pregnant or breastfeeding. Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?"
  • Information Sheet and After Care Information documents, both English and French versions.

In addition to these documents, the IWK has produced a video to help individuals make an informed choice about whether to get the COVID vaccine while they are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or breastfeeding.

The video is hosted on the IWK public website: https://www.iwk.nshealth.ca/COVID-19/vaccine-info-for-pregnant-or-breastfeeding
