GP’s administering the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine have been told to stop giving it to pregnant women. NHS England bosses wrote to practices at the weekend to tell them to cancel all scheduled first doses for expecting mums.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) had originally said that mums to be should not get the AZ jab and instead be given an alternative.
But the JCVI changed its mind after a report came out of the US that declared the AZ jab to be safe for pregnant women. It advised that women should be offered Pfizer or Moderna vaccines first, but did not ban expectant mums from getting AstraZeneca’s jab.
It said all “sites should implement screening procedures to ensure pregnant women are identified and offered the Pfizer BioNtech or Moderna vaccine.”
Remember, when the vaccines began rolling off assembly lines last year, the World Health organisation said that they should not be given to pregnant women because of the lack of evidence on safety and efficacy. Pregnant women were not included in the trials.
Never forget that you have a 0.3 per cent chance of dying IF you come down with covid-19. The AZ jab, like all of them, was given emergency use authorisation and Oxford/AstraZeneca was indemnified against liability.
By accepting one of these experimental drugs, you are signing up to a trial which is ongoing. Consider that for a minute. Nobody knows what the long-term effects of these drugs are. There is no data. The minute you roll up your sleeve, you become a guinea pig.
Evidence is emerging all over the world that these treatments are already doing great harm. Word to the wise. Just say no.
