Although limited data exists establishing the safety of vaccines for pregnant women, limited empirical evidence has found no adverse effects so far. 

Moreover, it has been found that compared to non-pregnant women with COVID-19, pregnant women are at increased risk of invasive ventilation with an equivalent mortality to age-matched peers. Also, data from Canada as well as USA, shows an increased risk of preterm birth associated with COVID-19 infection in pregnancy which will cause consequent morbidity to the infant related to prematurity. This implies that the likely safety provided by vaccination to vulnerable pregnancies may outweigh the unknown risks.

Therefore, it is advised that women who are in high exposure environments such as frontline workers or those that have underlying health conditions making them more vulnerable to a severe covid infection should consider taking the vaccine. 

Here is a list of country-wise guidance on which vaccines are being administered and what is the official stance around vaccination for pregnant women:
