Many pregnant women felt pushed into COVID-19 vaccination. During the registrational randomized trials, child-bearing age and pregnant women were excluded from receiving the genetic vaccines because of a traditional concern over safety with any new medicinal product.
Allowing pregnant women to take genetic vaccines was a huge gamble for the ill-fated campaign. Unless doctors raised alarms about the vaccines causing complications, data on maternal-fetal adverse events could be buried, particularly fetal loss.
Jorgensen et al used Canadian automated health record data in an attempt to reassure the public on vaccine safety. As an epidemiologist, I am not comforted. We know the vaccines have a dangerous mechanism of action causing uncontrolled production of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein in the mother’s body. The Spike protein circulates for six months or more in the bloodstream and directly damages vital organs and causes both blood clotting and bleeding. None of these are healthy for a pregnant woman.

The authors took 182,324 pregnancies during the vaccine period and whittled them down by excluding many cases particularly unlinked mother-baby records. Thus there is no data reported on fatal loss (miscarriage, stillbirth). If a vaccinated mother delivered, then took the baby home and but had to rush the child back to a different clinic or hospital for seizures, hemorrhage, etc., the baby’s medical record would not be linked to the mothers EMR identifier since the infant would be admitted alone as a single new patient.
