Vaccination Corona

Adjusted advice Corona vaccination

From now on all pregnant women are advised to get vaccinated, preferably with an mRNA vaccine, after receiving an invitation for a COVID-19 vaccination.

The position “Vaccination against COVID-19 around pregnancy and childbirth” has been revised, based on the latest scientific insights. (Previously, it was recommended that only vulnerable pregnant women should be vaccinated.)
The position also states that the Health Council sees no objections to vaccination in breastfeeding women, because it is plausible that the vaccines will not end up in breast milk.

Research shows, pregnant women with COVID-19 have a greater risk of developing a serious course of the disease. In the United States, 90,000 pregnant women have now been vaccinated with one of the mRNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna). 35,000 of them participated in a study, of which 4,000 women have already completed pregnancy. The study reported no significant side effects.
