The postmarketing surveillance data, published in The New England Journal of Medicine,1 found "no obvious safety signals" among the 35,691 pregnant women who got either the Moderna or Pfizer shots between December 14, 2020, and February 28, 2021. The women ranged in age from 16 to 54 years old. CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky issued a statement saying:2
"No safety concerns were observed for people vaccinated in the third trimester or safety concerns for their babies. As such, CDC recommends pregnant people receive COVID-19 vaccines."
Can Self-Reported Data Be Trusted?
There is more than one reason to be suspicious of this green-lighting for pregnant women. First of all, as noted by Jeremy Hammond in a recent Tweet:3
"This was NOT a randomized placebo-controlled trial. There is no data from clinical trials showing that it is safe for pregnant women to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Postmarketing surveillance is NOT a sufficient substitute for proper safety studies."
The authors themselves state that data on mRNA "vaccines" in pregnancy are limited, and that without longitudinal follow-up of large numbers of women, it's not possible to determine "maternal, pregnancy and infant outcomes."4
