Pregnant women who receive a COVID-19 vaccine do not face an increased risk of pre-term births or low-weight babies, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
A CDC study looked at 46,000 expectant mothers who were vaccinated in either their second or third trimesters.
They all received either Pfizer or Moderna's shot.
Scientists say they didn't find a link between vaccines and those conditions.
The agency still recommends all pregnant women get vaccinated.
