Abstract

Background: COVID-19 infection in pregnancy is associated with a higher risk of progression to severe disease, but vaccine uptake by pregnant women is hindered by persistent safety concerns. COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy has been shown to reduce stillbirth, but its relationship with preterm birth is uncertain. Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the sociodemographic characteristics associated with vaccine uptake in Melbourne, Australia, and to compare perinatal outcomes by vaccination status.
