Pregnant people who are vaccinated are less likely to contract COVID-19 than unvaccinated pregnant people, and those vaccinated and boosted are less likely to get COVID than those who are vaccinated only, according to the first-ever large study of COVID boosters in pregnant people. The study was led by the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in Seattle, and was published in Lancet Digital Health.

“We found that vaccinated pregnant people had lower COVID-19 rates than those who were unvaccinated, and that the pregnant people who were vaccinated and boosted had even lower rates,” said ISB Research Scientist Samantha Piekos, PhD, who led the study.
