Doctors Encourage Expecting Mothers To Take The COVID-19 Vaccine

 

Following a surge in virus-related problems among pregnant women, the Malta College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MCOG) has strongly urged them to take the COVID-19 vaccination.

 

In a statement, they explained how they previously advised that only women at high risk of virus exposure or with high risk medical problems be provided the vaccination. However, the college announced that they are now modifying their recommendation such that all pregnant women should consider receiving the COVID-19 vaccination after the 12th week of pregnancy.

 

 

The MCOG also emphasised that vaccination is the most effective approach to decrease the risk of developing COVID-19 during pregnancy and the associated consequences for both mother and child. They also added that COVID-19 immunization may lower the chance of a mother being admitted to intensive care, having a preterm baby, or having a stillbirth.

It was also said that the COVID-19 vaccination may be used throughout pregnancy and breast-feeding, and that if a woman is attempting to conceive, she can continue use the vaccine because it has no effect on fertility.
Pregnant women can phone 145 or send an email to [email protected] to schedule an appointment for vaccination.
