I’m 36 years old woman and I’m 6 weeks pregnant now. I can’t decide whether I should take the covid vaccine or no!! I need consultation as here in Jordan it’s not allowed yet for pregnant women to get vaccinated but my doctor thinks it’s better to take it. Are there any risk? Recommended or no? Thank you

Hi and thank you for your question.

We truly understand your concern about whether you should get vaccinated or not. We will try to help you.

For your information, according to the Malaysian JKJAV, there is a COVID-19 vaccine suitable for pregnant mothers between 14-23 weeks of pregnancy.

However, you should get further confirmation from your doctor and report to the medical officer at the local Vaccination Center for further evaluation.

You can also talk with a doctor prior to the vaccination if you require additional help. We will gladly cater for your inquiry further.

We hope you will be satisfied with our answer.
