CONNECTICUT (WTNH) — New questions are arising as COVID-19 vaccinations ramp up across Connecticut. One of the most asked by News 8 viewers: Should you get the shot if you’re pregnant?

Pfizer is enrolling some 4,000 pregnant women to participate in its COVID vaccine trial. This after extensive analysis on animals showing the shot’s safety and efficacy.

Expectant moms were initially left out of COVID trials as a safety precaution by the FDA.
