Can Pregnant Women Get The Coronavirus Vaccine?

Pfizer’s breakthrough vaccine is unlikely to be offered to pregnant women due to the lack of evidence about how it works on them reports the Daily Mail.

They will also not be included in the Oxford or Moderna vaccines either because there were no mothers-to-be were included in clinical trials. This is a very understandable predicament given the risk that could have been posed to an unborn baby.

Although, the Pfizer’s vaccine has been approved by Britain’s medical watchdog and no evidence to suggest pregnant women are at risk the UK government has made it clear that pregnant women should not have the vaccine until they have given birth, while women who think they might be pregnant are urged to delay vaccination until they are certain they are not, and those trying for a baby should not be immunised either.

This is purely a precautionary measure.

Some vaccines that contain live versions of viruses are not usually recommended in pregnancy because of the potential for minor infection, while others are considered safe to use.

Children under the age of 16 also won’t be offered the vaccine because of a lack of data on safety and efficacy – the jab was only tested on adults.

Additionally, on Tuesday it was decided that people with severe allergies should not be given the vaccine, after two NHS staff suffered allergic reactions after injection.
