The Impact of COVID-19 Disease and Vaccination on Pregnancy and Newborns

December 20, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Please join CITF and CanCOVID for the presentation which will be followed by a panel discussion and a question-and-answer period.

Globally, there are limited data on COVID-19 illness and vaccination during pregnancy to inform recommendations for pregnant people and their care providers and to guide public health policies.

For that reason, the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force (CITF) and CanCOVID are eager to share the latest research from three CITF-supported studies on the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 vaccination on pregnancy and newborns.
