Objectives: There is an urgent need to review the status of COVID-19 vaccine immunization in pregnant women globally, so that adverse outcomes may be prevented. In this study, we performed a systematic review to evaluate the probable outcomes of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant women. Materials and methods:An electronic search over three months (June 15-August 15, 2021) was conducted. Original studies evaluating safety concerns in pregnant women for COVID-19 vaccination were included. Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) 2009 guidelines were used for data collection and reporting of findings. Results:COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant women was not associated with increased adverse effects or complications to the mother as well as the developing fetus or new-born compared to non-vaccinated pregnant women. Vaccinated pregnant women showed a robust immune response against COVID-19 infection. Conclusion:COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy causes no significant health risks for the mother or the developing fetus or new-born.
