Pregnant women are called to get vaccinated against Covid-19
Experts in obstetrics, gynecologists and the Ministry of Health call on pregnant women to go to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccinations continue, and with it the desire to finally stop the transmission and contagion of the virus.
These appeals are produced after experiencing an increase in the number of hospital admissions of pregnant women and knowing the death of at least 5 pregnant women in the last month. On the other hand, the Spanish Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics states that it has been shown that pregnant women have a higher risk of severe COVID-19. They could also have an increased risk of adverse pregnancy-related outcomes. Like preterm delivery and some neonatal risks.
WHO recommended vaccination of pregnant women with mRNA vaccines. Pfizer and Moderna. It is important that we do not trust ourselves and lower our guard. It should be remembered that a vaccine does not mean that there is no contagion, but rather that the body is prepared in case of infection.
We invite you to continue wearing face masks, although in some places it is no longer mandatory. That you wash your hands several times a day, and that you continue to use an antibacterial gel. Keep your distance and do not live with more than 10 people in closed places. Protect yourself and your loved ones.
