Canadian COVID-19 Vaccine Registry for Pregnant & Lactating Individuals (COVERED): An Evaluation of Safety, Effectiveness & Acceptability

COVERED: We are seeking individuals that have been pregnant or were lactating during the COVID-19 pandemic to take part in the COVID-19 Vaccine Registry for Pregnant and Lactating Individuals (COVERED). Participants do not have to have already received a COVID-19 vaccine, nor do they need to intend to receive the vaccine. Participants will answer questions about their attitudes towards the COVID-19 vaccine, their health experiences and their pregnancy outcomes. Purpose of Study: This is a national registry of unvaccinated and vaccinated pregnant and lactating individuals. We are conducting this research to improve our understanding of vaccine safety and how well the vaccines protect against COVID-19.



The COVERED registry was designed as a Pan-Canadian project with collaborators in every province and territory. The project is led by Dr. Deborah Money and her Reproductive Infectious Diseases (RID) research team at the BC Women’s Hospital in Vancouver, BC. Key physicians and researchers across Canada have worked together to create this registry to learn about your experience when receiving a COVID-19 vaccination while pregnant or lactating. Our aim is to report our data to inform safe vaccine recommendations for those that are pregnant and lactating.
