Covid Vaccination Update

Essex County OB/GYN follows evidence-based practices in the care of our pregnant patients. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Nurse Midwives, and multiple national leading organizations representing experts in maternal care and public health professionals have all recommended Covid-19 vaccination for pregnant and lactating women. Essex County OB/GYN Associates supports this recommendation.

Pregnant individuals are at increased risk of severe COVID-19 infection, including death. With cases rising as a result of the Delta variant, the best way for pregnant individuals to protect themselves against the potential harm from COVID-19 infection is to be vaccinated. Many employers are now mandating vaccination for employees. The current data are sufficient to support vaccine safety in pregnant and lactating individuals.
