Statement from the ASRM COVID-19 Task Force
Apr 20, 2021
Published in: ASRM Press Release
For over a year, we have been working to evaluate the latest science around COVID-19 and reproductive health.
As scientists and medical experts conduct and analyze the research, we have refined our recommendations accordingly. As in all our work, we endeavor to help professionals and patients understand the best information available.
To commemorate National Infertility Awareness Week this year, our message is clear and simple:
Everyone, including pregnant women and those seeking to become pregnant, should get a COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccines are safe and effective.
We will continue to review the science and work with our experts on the COVID-19 epidemic so that we can continue to provide the best, possible guidance. We encourage you to follow CDC guidelines on social distancing, masks, and other protections
