Experts Recommend Pregnant Women Get COVID Vaccine
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with various Alabama healthcare organizations are strongly recommending that pregnant women get the COVID-19 vaccination.
“A new CDC analysis of current data from the v-safe pregnancy registry assessed vaccination early in pregnancy and did not find an increased risk of miscarriage among nearly 2,500 pregnant women who received an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine before 20 weeks of pregnancy,” the agency said in an August 11, 2021, statement.
The Alabama Perinatal Quality Collaborative issued a statement in August: “We urge those caring for pregnant and lactating women to counsel their patients on the benefits of vaccination. The literature supports the safety of vaccination in individuals, before, during, and after pregnancy.”
The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) issued a recommendation on August 24, 2021, citing vaccination support from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
The ADPH “joins these organizations in strongly urging all pregnant individuals, along with recently pregnant, planning to become pregnant, breastfeeding and other eligible pregnant women to be vaccinated against COVID-19.”
