The Minister of Health of the City of Buenos Aires, Fernán Quirós, confirmed this Thursday that

pregnant women without comorbidities will be able to be vaccinated

against the coronavirus as of this Friday, although they must have a prescription from a doctor.

"Until a few days ago, it was recommended to vaccinate only pregnant women who had comorbidities or risk diseases, because they are vaccines that have

not

yet been

sufficiently tested in pregnancy

. But given that pregnant women have a potential risk of the disease, it has been decided to approve their vaccination, "explained the Buenos Aires official.

And he added: "Tomorrow (Friday) at my conference I will be announcing the

opening of registration

for pregnant women without comorbidities."

Meanwhile, he warned that they can only do so if they have a "prescription from the doctor in charge", because it is

"a very particular situation

.

"

"It is going to ask that a doctor in charge or an obstetrician indicate the vaccine, evaluating the

risks and benefits of each patient

. Once they have the doctor's indication, vaccination will be allowed," he added.

On the other hand, when asked whether there is evidence that shows that

the baby is not affected

by the vaccination, he said: "The evidence for this vaccine is short-lived, that is why it is so prudent with pregnant women."

"Evaluating the risks and benefits, the opinion of the doctor in charge and also of the patient, the State will apply the dose. In any case, there is sufficient safety and

there is no plausible mechanism for causing harm,

" he added.

Likewise, he pointed out that it is also necessary to be "precautionary with vaccines", although during this pandemic "those precautionary principles were lowered due to what the drama of the disease means."

Finally, he argued that in Argentina "

no particular type of vaccine is recommended

" for pregnant women, despite the risk of thrombosis that the

AstraZeneca

vaccine has

, given that "it is an autoimmune mechanism and not a mechanism thrombophilic ".

"In any case, in the city we have an email (consultavacunacovid@buenosaires.gob.ar) for those people who for any reason have a

medical indication

for a particular vaccine, and to the extent that we can accompany them with the request, we will we are going to do, "he concluded.
