About The Study: In this systematic review and meta-analysis, COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy was not associated with increased risks of peripartum adverse outcomes, including preterm birth, small size for gestational age, cesarean delivery, and postpartum hemorrhage. COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy was associated with lower risks of neonatal intensive care unit admission, intrauterine fetal death, and maternal SARS-CoV-2 infection. Therefore, COVID-19 vaccination should be encouraged for pregnant individuals.
