2 Kovid-19 Vaccine, Preliminary Research Shows No Pregnancy Risk

Researchers analyzed side effects reported by V-SAFE participants who received the Pfizer or Modern Vaccine between December 14, 2020 and February 28, 2021. She focused on 35,691 participants who stated that she was pregnant when she was pregnant. Subsequently, she became vaccinated or pregnant.

After vaccination, pregnant participants reported the same general pattern of side effects that non-active people did, the researchers found: pain, fatigue, headaches, and muscle aches at the injection site.

Women who were pregnant were slightly more likely to report injection site pain than women who were unlikely to report other side effects. They were slightly more likely to report nausea or vomiting after the second dose.

Pregnant V-SAFE participants were also given the opportunity to enroll in a special registry that monitors pregnancy and child outcomes.

By the end of February, 827 of those enrolled in the pregnancy registry had completed their pregnancies, with 86 percent of those born alive. According to the researchers’ report, rates of miscarriage, premature birth, low birth weight and birth defects were consistent among pregnant women.

“This study is of critical importance to pregnant individuals,” said Dr., a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at the University of Pennsylvania. Michael Elowitz said in an email. “It is very reassuring that no acute events occurred in pregnant individuals during the study”, he said.

But the report has several limitations and requires much research, experts said. Enrollment in monitoring programs is voluntary and data are self-reported.
