Hi,

Both the available COVID vaccines - covishield and covaxin are not live virus vaccines and so they are safe to take during pregnancy. The safety reports of the above vaccines in pregnancy have also been recently disclosed By the govt of India.
The minor risk of complications secondary to taking the vaccine is much smaller to the risks of acquiring COVID 19 infection during pregnancy. 

It is safe to take the vaccine. It is advisable to maintain a 4 week gap between these vaccines and any other vaccine you take during pregnancy like TT.
