According to RIVM, pregnant women can be safely vaccinated with MRNA vaccines from Pfizer / Bioendech and Moderna. Previously, this advice only applied to pregnant women with an underlying disease. According to the health agency, the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the side effects.
It follows the advice of the working group of the Federation of Medical Specialists. It is based on the experience of the United States, where approximately 90,000 pregnant women have already been vaccinated, mainly with MRNA vaccines. No “significant side effects” were demonstrated.
Therefore, RIVM prefers to vaccinate pregnant women with MRNA vaccines. There is not enough knowledge about the safety of Johnson’s vaccine and the Astrogeneca vaccine is only used for people over 60 years of age.
Pregnant women who have been vaccinated are asked to report to the Side Effects Center Lorepe, which investigates the safety of vaccines and medications during pregnancy. Incidentally, there is no preferential treatment: pregnant women are called for vaccination, it is their age type.
