UPMC Offering COVID-19 Vaccine for Pregnant Women

In the coming weeks, UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital will be holding special vaccination clinics for pregnant women only. Appointments are required.


COVID-19 Vaccine

With tens of thousands of pregnant women vaccinated across the United States, there is currently no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccines cause any harm to pregnant women or their babies, including the development of the placenta. The CDC established the v-safe COVID-19 Vaccine Pregnancy Registry to continue to collect data and learn more.

Pregnant women are encouraged to speak to their healthcare provider to discuss the benefits and potential risks of receiving the vaccine before scheduling. While these conversations may be helpful, they are not required.

Schedule An Appointment

You must be 18 years old or older to receive a vaccine. You do not need to be a UMPC patient to qualify. To schedule an appointment at one of UPMC Magee’s clinics for pregnant women, call 833.653.0519. COVID-19 vaccination is provided at no cost to the patient.
