Mom-to-be and former Bollywood actress Geeta Basra recently advised pregnant women to refrain from taking the COVID-19 vaccine until clinical trials are done. According to a source, Geeta’s social media is full of requests and queries but a recurring question is whether the vaccine should be taken by to-be moms or not. Commenting on the same, she said, ‘Vaccination is new to all of us. It’s a known fact that the vaccine helps keep the virus at bay but at the same time, many doctors are advising to-be moms against taking the jab. There are chances that it may cause complications during the pregnancy. The government guidelines and the medical organisations suggest that breastfeeding and pregnant women should not take the vaccine. As of now, there isn’t enough evidence and studies carried out on the effects of the vaccine on lactating and pregnant women. I have also been advised by the doctors to not take the vaccine for now and I would urge expecting mothers to refrain as well till we don’t have further announcements from the government in this regard’.
