“This is precautionary as there is no evidence that the vaccine may be harmful. There is also no evidence that the vaccine can reduce fertility.”
But, if you’re in the clinically vulnerable category, or are currently eligible for the vaccine, you should get immunised as soon as possible.
It’s a better idea to get vaccinated and then push back your pregnancy plans three months, added Dr Prior.
“If you are advised to have the vaccine because you are clinically vulnerable or a healthcare worker, you are advised to have the vaccine and wait three months after the first dose before trying to conceive,” he said.
