New advice on covid vaccination in pregnancy

JCVI issues new advice on COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant women

Pregnant women now a priority group for COVID-19 vaccination

Pregnant women are to be considered a ‘vulnerable’ group, emphasising the urgency of them receiving COVID-19 vaccination and booster doses

Vaccine misinformation policy

Don’t post content on YouTube if it includes harmful misinformation about currently approved and administered vaccines on any of the following:

Vaccine safety: content alleging that vaccines cause chronic side effects, outside of rare side effects that are recognised by health authorities

Efficacy of vaccines: content claiming that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease

COVID-19 medical misinformation policy

Claims about COVID-19 vaccinations that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the WHO

Claims that an approved COVID-19 vaccine will cause death, infertility, miscarriage, autism or contraction of other infectious diseases

Claims that COVID-19 vaccines will make people who receive them magnetic

Pregnancy, breastfeeding, fertility and coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination

There’s no evidence COVID-19 vaccination increases the risk of having a miscarriage, pre-term birth or other complications in your pregnancy.

The COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any live viruses and cannot give you or your baby COVID-19.

COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy

Research published on 25 July by UKOSS (UK Obstetric Surveillance System national cohort),

JCVI issues new advice on COVID-19 vaccination for pregnant women

The JCVI has advised that pregnant women should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the rest of the population, based on their age and clinical risk group.

Based on this (US) data

Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI)

Advises that it’s preferable for pregnant women in the UK to be offered the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines where available.

There is no evidence to suggest that other vaccines are unsafe for pregnant women, but more research is needed.

Public Health England’s Green Book

The Green Book

advises that pregnant women should discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with their clinician,

including the latest evidence on safety and which vaccines they should receive.

Professor Wei Shen Lim, COVID-19 Chair for JCVI

We encourage pregnant women to discuss the risks and benefits with their clinician

There is more real-world safety data from the US in relation to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines in women who are pregnant –

therefore, we advise a preference for these to be offered to pregnant women.

Dr Edward Morris, President, Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

Reporting of side effects

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.

This includes any possible side effects not listed in this leaflet.

If you are concerned about a side-effect it can be reported directly via the Coronavirus Yellow Card reporting site

  1. Thanks doctor for your work . My partner is 39 years old and is pregnant and 12 weeks in to the journey . Its a IVF pregnancy . She has had two jabs no booster before she got pregnant . She has lost 3 pregnancies before . Two entopic one miscarriage so no tubes hence the IVF . Anyway so far so good so hats off to the IVF in plymouth they have been fantastic . Now i have had no jabs and will never have a covid vax . But the fear of my partner having a jab while pregnant terrifies me . I try and show her info and talk but it just gets blocked . Its been so hard to get to this point i dont want this vax that i see as poison now to mess it up now any ideas kind regards

  2. Never forget, that Grünental and the German government continued telling people to take thalidomide for morning sickness for 4yrs after becoming aware of the deformities. As did the tobacco companies insist that smoking was safe for decades. Why anyone would put blind faith in a person/company that profits from your ingesttation of something is beyond me

  3. 🎼Evver since I got my booster I’ve had deep pains;that’s a tumor, hurts like hell everytime I taaake the prick. And ohhh it’s plain ta see, should of never listened to that ol fAuCi, and I’ll be damd if I ever take that risk…. AGAIN 🎼

  4. I wish Public Health would limit themselves to providing information and resources. There's no logical reason for them to have control over our medical choices, our speech, or our access to information. Public Health is paid for by tax dollars and they should be accountable to every tax payer. Real science stands up under fire, that's how that works. If there's no fire, there's no science,. Period.

  5. From the NPEU document Campbell kindly linked to: The data from these studies [UKOS, BPSU, MBRACE-UK] shows that during the Delta COVID-19 wave (16 May 2021 to 31 October 2021):
    1436 pregnant women were admitted to hospital with symptomatic COVID-19, of whom 230 (16%) were admitted to intensive care.
    17 (1%) pregnant and postnatal women died from COVID-19 (5.4 per 100,000 live births). In comparison, 10 women died during the Alpha period (3.2 per 100,000 live births) and 7 women died during the pre-Alpha 'wild-type' period (1.4 per 100,000 live births).
    Four babies admitted to neonatal units died from COVID-19 (1.3 per 100,000 live births).
    COVID-19 infection resulted in worse pregnancy outcomes. Of the hospitalised women, 19% had a preterm birth, 2% had a pregnancy loss, and 2% gave birth to a stillborn baby.
    Almost all (96%) of the pregnant women admitted to hospital [with symptomatic COVID] were unvaccinated. Of those admitted to intensive care, 98% were unvaccinated.

  6. Despite the nine pages of vax adverse events listed in the court ordered Pfizer safety data drop, the vax is still safe and effective. The excess deaths now being reported are most likely due to "Cold Showers", "Sudden Adult Death Syndrome", or as a recent study suggests "Car Exhaust And Heavy Braking."

  7. With all the stuff that cant be said you shkukd have refused to make the video. Cant talk about vaccine injuries lol do me a favour how many babies are born sick after thr mother has been cofit vaccinated?? I thought ylu migbt have been lookin to help but your definitely part of the problem. Natural immunity is best not financial led immunisation of the planet and every human on it.

  8. Thank you for your dedication to bringing everyone the latest information throughout these troubled times! It's disgraceful that they have your channel under warning when you have done nothing but be honest and unbiased. Unwavering and unquestioning trust in whatever the government and WHO says is a dangerous thing when no one holds the absolute truth and information always changes. Does anyone remember when they said that we shouldn't wear masks because they do nothing? Yeah, solid advice… Or when they were hosing down streets like you could catch something on the bottom of your shoes? I'd charge them with spreading misinformation.

  9. Dr. Campbell is getting strikes against his channel and his character for telling the truth and not just blindly following the world government's narrative! Good for him!

  10. Its amusing they talk about misinformation when its clear that when enough people are directly or indirectly affected by death of a loved one and or strange rashes and neuropathies ad heart issues that were never present before and when enough young athletes die maybe someone might admit the mistake.. but up until then skirting the censors rules is the only way to try get people to ask questions.. well done john

  11. So, hardly an about turn, but certainly a move towards a posture that could enable such if needed ? Also placing the consequences of any unfortunate and undesirable outcomes on both the recipient, and those much further down the chain of command ? So, the standard template employed by government bodies when they suspect they may have dropped a clanger.

    As for the AZ recipe, as it turned out to be a relative dud in terms of duration of efficacy, plus other things, is that still on offer ?

  12. A decade ago my wife was talked into a whooping cough vaccine whilst pregnant. She was not given any adverse event data before agreeing, post that vaccine she now vomits if she eats egg, apparently this is a common side effect. Since then we researched vaccines properly and no one in our family will ever take any ever again.

  13. Anecdotally, I know of more than one expectant mother who miscarried shortly after having had the COVID vaccine. I realise that the two may not be linked, but it cannot be ruled out either. It also seems to me that threats against posting views that go contrary to "official" views, effectively is censorship that there needs to be more openness about information supporting "official" claims of no-harm and so on with vaccines / treatment. The lack of openness suggests hiding or distorting the truth and that the programme of misinformation and propaganda continues to be perpetrated by the WHO, big Pharma and national governments. Just my opinion and you may not agree.

  14. I posted your videos and it got all flagged at fake news, facebook said it was all fake, not about the ethylene oxide carcinogenic substances on tests that causes cancer they were saying your videos are fake.
