Can 7th-month Pregnant women get vaccinated

It is a question that has troubled pregnant women not only in Saudi Arabia but around the world. According to the local website, the Ministry of Health has said in response to this question that “In the light of the research of scientific and research institutes, it can be said that there is no obstacle in vaccinating a pregnant woman.

“The ministry said the vaccine is “very safe” and that pregnant women of different months are getting the vaccine in other countries, just like ordinary people. On the other hand, World Health Organization expert SUMIA SWAMINATHAN has also commented on this subject in her Twitter account.

“Should a pregnant woman be vaccinated or not?” He asked. The answer to this question is that.

“The risks to a pregnant woman from not getting the vaccine are far greater than the risks that can occur after getting the vaccine. Vaccination does not have the same problems as non-vaccination.

Pregnancy is a special condition that is the focus of the World Health Organization and its top priority. We want the vaccine to be very safe and to have no side effects in the near or distant future.”
