KNOW COVID-19 TO SAY NO TO COVID-19

Information Guide on Vaccination for Pregnant Women

January 6, 2022

Pregnant women are more prone to become very ill from COVID-19. Pregnant women who get vaccinated may be protected from the serious sickness during their pregnancy. Based on the recommendations of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI), MoHFW has approved vaccination for pregnant women against COVID-19. However, the woman must be educated of the risks and benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine so that she can make an informed decision.

We have compiled a repository of verified information to help frontline healthcare providers and vaccinators counsel pregnant women on COVID-19 vaccine.

VaxNow is bringing together the Government, Private Sector Organizations, Community leaders, NGOs and the Media to accelerate the vaccination of vulnerable people in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Bihar. These partners will collaborate to reach the unreached through an agile, geographically contextualized plan which will help overcome barriers for vulnerable communities. The criteria for selecting these communities is: people with the highest access barriers, the highest chance of contracting COVID and people living in overcrowded places.
