A health worker administers a dose of the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine to a pregnant woman at Clalit Health Services, in Israel's Mediterranean coastal city of Tel Aviv on January 23, 2021.

Pregnant women who received COVID-19 vaccines did not experience an increased risk of miscarriage, according to new research on data from Bloomington-based HealthPartners and several large medical centers across the country.

Doctors hope the results will prove reassuring to pregnant women who, as a group in the U.S., have been relatively slow to get vaccinated.

"This is really the first large data analysis of risks of COVID-19 vaccination early in pregnancy," said Dr. Elyse Kharbanda, senior investigator at HealthPartners Institute and lead author on the study. "The research we're presenting is contributing to the evidence out there that the vaccines are safe in pregnancy."
