Amidst concerns about pregnant women and their children due to Corona, the Union Health Ministry said last Friday that pregnant women can and should be vaccinated against Corona.
Until last month, lactating women were eligible for the corona vaccine but pregnant women were not. The government said this was due to a lack of safety and efficacy data because clinical trials of vaccines usually do not include pregnant women as participants.
Last week news agency ANI quoted ICMR Director General Balram Bhargava, in which he said – “The Union Health Ministry has issued guidelines that pregnant women can be vaccinated.” Vaccination for pregnant women was one of the topics discussed by NTAGI, the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization, in May.
