Vaccination against coronavirus has started worldwide. At the same time, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that Pregnant women should not get Moderna Vaccine. Also said that this vaccine should be applied only when they are more at risk from the virus. The WHO said that this vaccine can be applied to women who are breastfeeding. Significantly, companies like Moderna, AstraZeneca, Bharat-Biotech have prepared the vaccine worldwide.
The WHO released a status report on Tuesday, stating that women are at greater risk of being exposed to Kovid-19 due to being pregnant. But at present, the modern vaccine has not been recommended to pregnant women. This should be done only when the risk of their infection is high. Experts have now started advising pregnant women not to get the modern vaccine unless they are posted as health workers in the corona patients’ wards.
WHO does not have data to prove
However, in a virtual briefing of WHO’s ‘Strategic Advisory Group of Experts’ (SAGE) on vaccination, its director Cate O’Brien expressed concern over the decision of the World Health Body. O’Brien said that there is no reason to think that there can be any problem in pregnancy. Right now we are going on assuming this, but we have no data in this regard.
Preparing to be given the second dose of Moderna
Officially, health experts have asked clinics to plan for a second dose of Moderna. Significantly, the second dose is to be given 28 days after the first dose of the vaccine, although sometimes this gap is increased to 42 days. Currently, 100 microgram doses of the vaccine are given to people at an interval of 28 days.
