Vaccination rates among pregnant women in the U.S. are very low, with only 23% receiving at least one dose of the drug.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has urged pregnant American women to be vaccinated against COVID-19. This was reported by Reuters on Wednesday, August 11.
Vaccination has no effect on the risk of miscarriage, the CDC stressed, according to surveillance data. That said, vaccination rates among pregnant women are very low today, with only 23% receiving at least one dose of the drug.
At the same time, pregnancy increases the risk of complications during coronavirus disease, and the disease, for its part, increases the risk of preterm birth.
The U.S. has called for vaccination of all people over the age of 12, pregnant women, women who are breastfeeding, and those who are trying to get pregnant today.
вЂњWe know that myths are being spread that have to do with fertility. They are not based on any evidence. There is no scientific evidence to support it,вЂќ the CDC added.
Recall that the WHO previously called the world's vaccine inequality вЂњshameful.вЂќ Globally, about 20 people could play a key role in addressing COVID vaccine inequality, the WHO said.
