Can women who are pregnant get the COVID-19 vaccine?

The CDC recommends that women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant, get the vaccine. People who are pregnant are more likely to get very sick from COIVD-19 compared to people who are not pregnant.  Additionally, COVID-19 during pregnancy increases the risk of complications that would affect the pregnancy and the developing baby.
