Pregnant women have a higher risk of serious illness during the COVID-19 pandemic. This raises concerns about COVID-19 infection in pregnant women. Besides COVID-19, pregnant women are also a high-risk group for influenza infection. Influenza vaccination is used to prevent coinfection with COVID-19. Thus, this study examines the acceptance of the COVID-19 vaccine in pregnant women based on factors of worry about COVID-19 infection and a history of influenza vaccination. This study was a systematic review that assessed cross-sectional articles for the year 2020-2021 from the Pubmed, Science Direct and Medrxiv databases with narrative analysis. There were 3 articles that met the criteria. The three articles showed a significant relationship between concern of being infected with COVID-19 and receiving COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant women, while a significant relationship between a history of influenza vaccination and receiving COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant women was only found in 2 articles. Compared to the history of influenza vaccination, the concerns of being infected with COVID-19 in pregnant women is significantly more related to receiving COVID-19 vaccination, so that it can be the focus of intervention to increase the acceptance of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnant women.
