According to US Centers for Disease and Prevention, women who are pregnant or who have just given birth should be vaccinated against the coronavirus, which issued an emergency recommendation Wednesday.
Pregnant Women Should Be Vaccinated Against Covid-19,According to CDC
Women who are attempting to conceive or who are intending to become pregnant, as well as those who are nursing, should also get vaccinated. Still, just 31 percent of pregnant women have received the vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a consequence, hundreds of pregnant women were admitted to the hospital, and more than 160 women died.
A health warning from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, “CDC highly advises COVID-19 immunization during or before pregnancy since the benefits of vaccine exceed any known or possible hazards.
“According to the study, more than 125,000 lab setting COVID-19 infections have been recorded in pregnant women as of September 27, 2021, with more than 22,000 hospitalized cases and 161 fatalities.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 22 pregnant women died in August alone, making it the worst month of the epidemic thus far. Approximately 97 percent of pregnant women hospitalized (for sickness or for labor and delivery) with proven SARS-CoV-2 infection in 2021, according to data from the COVID-19-Associated Hospital stays Surveillance Network (COVID-NET), according to a health warning released that year.
The danger does not just apply to the mother. When Covid-19 is present during pregnancy, it may result in premature delivery or infants that are born too ill to survive and must be sent to the neonatal unit or NICU. “Other unfavorable pregnancy outcomes, including such stillbirth, have been documented,” the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) said.
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted in a statement, “Vaccination coverage is greatest among Asian pregnant women (45.7 percent), but lower amongst Hispanic or Latino pregnant women (25 percent), and lowest amongst Black pregnant women (15.6 percent).”
“Pregnancy can be a joyous and stressful time for a woman and her family, and pregnancy throughout a pandemic is an additional source of worry for families.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky issued a statement saying, “I highly urge those who are infertile or contemplating pregnancy to speak with their health professional about the barrier protection benefits of the COVID-19 immunization to keep their infants and themselves safe.”
Walensky said on Tuesday at a Covid-19 briefing at the White House that research has shown that Covid-19 vaccines for pregnant women. Flu vaccinations are also recommended for pregnant women. The fact that we have outstanding safety data on all of these vaccinations is a wonderful development. Walensky said during the briefing on Tuesday that “we know that women who are pregnant are at greater risk of severe illness, hospitalization, and mechanical ventilation.”
“As a matter of fact, we’ve seen that some antibodies from the vaccination crosses into the bloodstream of the infant and that this antibody may, in fact, protect the kid.” The immune system proteins that are stimulated in the mother’s body go to her unborn child in the same way as they do with the flu.
