TORONTO (CTV Network) -- A new study looking at ultrasounds from more than 3,000 women has found that receiving the COVID-19 vaccine while pregnant was not associated with any increase in the risk of physical birth defects.

Although health experts have stressed that pregnant people should get vaccinated, and that there is no evidence that it has a detrimental impact on the parent or the child, lingering concerns have persisted for many due to pregnant people being excluded from the original round of clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines.
