- If you are pregnant or were recently pregnant, you are more likely to get severely ill from COVID-19. Pregnancy causes changes in the body that could make it easier to get very sick from respiratory viruses such as the one that causes COVID-19. These changes in the body can continue after pregnancy. People who are pregnant should talk to their doctor about the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine, and should also take other precautions to avoid infection, including wearing a well-fitting mask, physical distancing, avoiding crowds and washing hands frequently.
