British Gov’t Against Pregnant Women Receiving COVID Vax

The U.K. Government has denied giving the Pfizer COVID vaccine a “safe use” recommendation for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

QUICK FACTS:
  • A report from Britain’s Department of Health and Social Care outlined why the government recommends against pregnant or breastfeeding women getting the COVID-19 jab.
  • “The absence of reproductive toxicity data is a reflection of the speed of development to first identify and select COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 for clinical testing and its rapid development to meet the ongoing urgent health need,” the report states.
  • Last updated on August 16, the “Summary of the Public Assessment Report for COVID-19 Vaccine Pfizer/BioNTech” was published through the government’s Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.
  • “In the context of supply under Regulation 174, it is considered that sufficient reassurance of safe use of the vaccine in pregnant women cannot be provided at the present time,” the report concluded.
U.K. GOVERNMENT REPORT OPPOSING COVID VAX FOR PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING WOMEN:

“Use in women of childbearing potential could be supported provided healthcare professionals are advised to rule out known or suspected pregnancy prior to vaccination. Women who are breastfeeding should also not be vaccinated,” the report reads.

BACKGROUND:
  • In Oct. 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a guide urging pregnant women and those who recently gave birth to be vaccinated against the virus.
  • “CDC strongly recommends COVID-19 vaccination either before or during pregnancy because the benefits of vaccination outweigh known or potential risks,” the agency said in a health alert. “To date, only 31% of pregnant people have been vaccinated,” the CDC added.
  • As of Sept. 2021, CDC VAERS data show 3,823 pregnant women have reported adverse events related to COVID vaccines, including 1,144 reports of miscarriage or premature birth — a far greater number than the statistics the CDC used to justify its “urgent” recommendation that pregnant woman get vaccinated.
