How can the CDC say that the COVID vaccine is safe for pregnant women? Well, they did, according to this headline from The Washington Times on Wednesday, August 11th, “CDC says it is safe for pregnant women to get COVID-19 vaccine“.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that COVID-19 vaccination is safe during pregnancy, with a new study of pregnant women showing no increased risk of miscarriages.
“CDC encourages all pregnant people or people who are thinking about becoming pregnant and those breastfeeding to get vaccinated to protect themselves from COVID-19,” CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
“This is an experimental drug, not even with FDA approval”, commented Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison, Arkansas. “The FDA hasn’t said, or concluded that this vaccine is safe for anyone yet, let alone pregnant women. Now many have had the vaccine without any side effects, but some have had very serious side effects. Being in such an early stage, nobody knows what long term effects may happen. If you want the vaccine, that’s your choice. This is a free country, but if you choose not to have the vaccine, that’s also your choice. But nobody can say positively that this experimental drug is safe yet.”
