In Indonesia, the COVID-19 vaccine is given to pregnant women starting in the second trimester of pregnancy and the second dose is given according to the interval of the type of vaccine. Based on the initial survey where the Covid-19 vaccine coverage was still low for pregnant women for reasons such as fear of injections, lack of support from husbands and families, fear of being exposed to Covid-19 after vaccination. This study is a quantitative study with a pre-experimental design method of type one group pretest-posttest, to determine the effect of providing education and health promotion of Covid-19 vaccination to pregnant women on the willingness of pregnant women to be vaccinated against Covid-19. Sampling with stratified random and meet the inclusion criteria as many as 134 people. The instrument of data collection was done by using a questionnaire, the analysis using the Paired Sample T Test. the results of the t test were obtained t count > t table (p = 0.025; <0.05), so it was concluded that there was an effect of pregnant women's knowledge about the Covid-19 vaccine in pregnancy on the mother's willingness to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination.
