Even after the approval to get the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine, pregnant women are expressing concern and avoiding vaccines.
Amid the ongoing second wave of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19,) on the 2nd of July, the Union Health Ministry approved the COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant women in India. The approval was based on the recommendations of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI.)

Initially, COVID-19 vaccine for women were under trials, which was later announced safe and important to take for pregnant women. However, still the rates of pregnant women taking COVID-19 vaccine doses are low.
Despite the guidelines of the Central Government and the approval, many women are lacking interest or being uncomfortable with taking vaccines. To add to their hesitation, social media platforms and various myths about vaccines and vaccination drives added fear amongst people. Some of the major myths regarding the vaccine are complications in pregnancy, side effects in fertility, and lactating mothers should not take vaccines. In order to burst these myth bubbles, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) issued a set of guidelines, explaining the pros and cons of not taking COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant women.
The Central Government and state governments are working hard and creating awareness about the vaccination, especially for women expecting a baby.
Dr. V.K.Paul, a member of the NITI Aayog said, “We took time to recommend vaccination for pregnant women as studies were going on and now as all studies are in favour of vaccination for pregnant women, we are strongly recommending it.” He further said, “There might be or might not be some other pregnancy-related complications. It is the question of two lives. But it is not the only reason. There are risks of pre-term delivery too if a pregnant woman gets infected by Covid. Then it affects both the mother and the premature baby. So the vaccine has been recommended as it can prevent such complications.”
Meanwhile, currently, three vaccines against the Novel Coronavirus, the Serum Institute of India’s (SII) Covishield, Bharat Biotech Private Limited’s COVAXIN and the Dr. Reddy’s Laboratory manufactured Russian made Sputnik V are available and safe for pregnant women in India.
