The World Health Organization (WHO) has released new guidelines on the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine, including worrying advice that pregnant women should not receive the vaccine unless they are at high risk of ‘exposure.
The WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization released a series of recommendations on the Moderna vaccine on Tuesday, advising pregnant women not to be vaccinated unless they are health workers or that they present a particularly high risk of exposure.
“While pregnancy puts women at a higher risk of severe COVID-19, the use of this vaccine in pregnant women is currently not recommended,” SAGE wrote.
WHO director of immunization Kate O’Brien said clinical trials of the Moderna vaccine were needed in pregnant women.
The report also points out that the vaccine should be given in two doses with an interval of 28 days between each injection, with the possibility of extending this interval up to 42 days if necessary.
The SAGE report also highlighted the need to administer the vaccine in facilities where treatments for allergic reactions are readily available. The expert group released guidance on rival vaccine Pfizer / BioNTech several weeks ago.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States and the Independent Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices said there was not enough evidence to suggest that Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are or are not suitable for pregnant women. because none contains the virus itself and therefore they cannot cause Covid-19 but the data available was insufficient to make a call.
The latest guidelines from Public Health England support this position, stating that “the first Covid-19 vaccines do not contain organisms that can multiply in the body, so they cannot infect an unborn baby in the womb.”
The remorse of Biden voters is already building a few days in a new administration.
