Is the COVID-19 vaccine hazardous to pregnant women?

Some people have little faith in vaccines. They think it may affect the fetus as well as the mother. However, it’s all a myth, and there is no scientific fact to prove it. On the contrary, it may be highly effective.

This blog intends to prove that COVID-19 vaccines are also effective on pregnant women, highlighting the evidence and scientific facts.


COVID-19 vaccine and pregnant women

With the coronavirus outbreak and the global spread of this virus, many social groups were in great danger and mental anxiety. As you know, pregnant women are a susceptible group in the community. Therefore, they should be protected against various environmental factors, such as Coronavirus, taking advantage of the COVID vaccine. Note that vaccination is crucial for everyone’s health. However, the elderly, people with certain diseases, and pregnant women are among the most vulnerable groups and should receive special health care.

As a pregnant woman, you should not let the risk and fear of this disease deprive you of pregnancy. However, it would be best to use care methods during pregnancy, for instance:

  • Taking the vaccine
  • Doing check-ups
  • Taking specific medications
  • Doing exercises
  • Eating a healthy diet


Why should pregnant women get vaccinated?

In case of not receiving the vaccine, pregnant women may suffer from severe disease symptoms. In certain circumstances, the condition may even cause the death of the mother or fetus. Note that these vaccines may show slightly different symptoms and complications. However, these symptoms are much weaker and milder than the symptoms of the Coronavirus. 


Is the COVID-19 vaccine harmful to a pregnant woman?

Many pregnant women may not get vaccinated because of having concerns about the side effects. However, there has been considerable research on vaccines, all of which show that vaccines are not living viruses and cannot alter cells or reach the placenta and the fetus. So, these vaccines do not pose a risk to the mother’s body.

In addition, pregnant women can pass the antibodies into the child’s body through breastfeeding, making them resistant to the Coronavirus after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Benefits of taking the Moderna vaccine

The Moderna vaccine is an mRNA vaccine delivered in two doses. The active ingredient (highly purified RNA ) sends instructions to the cells to make viral proteins that the immune system can recognize to fight the Covid-19 virus. The Moderna vaccine does not contain any live virus, so you won’t get infected with COVID-19.

Moderna vaccine is one of the most popular vaccines for the Coronavirus, which has impressive effects on the body. However, as a pregnant woman, you should pay attention to the fact that before receiving the vaccine, you should take a COVID-19 test to determine you are not infected with COVID-19.

You can do the test at the centers where the Moderna vaccine is available. SNOHC is one of the best health centers to provide services in this field. Moderna has been effective in 94.1% of people who have received it. This vaccine may not completely protect you from getting the Coronavirus. However, it will reduce the symptoms of the virus in your body.
