Immunizations & Vaccines • Aug 10, 2021

Are there dangers to my baby if I get COVID-19 during pregnancy?

Dr. Jeannie Kelly, a Washington University maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, a sister hospital of St. Louis Children’s Hospital, discusses what the dangers are for mom and child if the mother gets COVID-19 during pregnancy.

Vaccines and boosters for all eligible ages are available through several BJC HealthCare locations, other members of the Pandemic Task Force, or retail pharmacies and vaccine sites across the region. Some pediatrician or primary care offices may also offer the COVID-19 vaccine to their patients, so check with your doctor as well!
