The agent responsible for this disease has been identified as a new coronavirus known as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2, that is likely to be derived from zoonotic coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV, which first appeared in 2002. It has triggered a global health crisis that is wreaking havoc on people's lives, the economies of various countries and public healthcare systems. The adoption and distribution of COVID-19 immunization will be contingent on the establishment of a few potent vaccines in order to reduce worldwide COVID-19 morbidity and death. The COVID-19 pandemic may be incredibly harmful for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Vaccines are one of the most efficient ways to keep some contagious diseases at bay.

In this article, we summarize to be had statistics at the protection profile of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant and nursing mothers, assessment demanding situations of vaccine popularity, hesitancy and effectiveness. Public health professionals should target young pregnant women by developing and carrying out screening tests, targeted health education and information campaigns.
