Hi respective Dr,
I am in 11 weeks and 4days of pregnancy and will receive my covid vaccination tomorrow (where my pregnancy will be in 11 weeks 5days). I have no comorbidity and yet healthy. My question is it safe to proceed my covid vaccination now or should I wait until 14 weeks of my pregnancy? Kindly advise. Thanks in advance Dr.
Hi and thank you for this question.
we understand your concern.
Covid-19 vaccination is safe for pregnant mothers.
Being vaccinated will help protect you and your child.
Covid-19 vaccine is suggested best for dose one at 11-33 weeks.
There are even cases where one did not know they are pregnant and have gotten vaccinated in the earlier weeks and this is not a problem.
You should head to the vaccine center tomorrow and inform your current condition at station number 3 of informed consent.
The doctors will monitor you for a longer period of time after your vaccination.
Astra zenaca does show a rare cause of blood clots in pregnancy.
We hope we answered your question well.
