Guidelines for Dialogue: Vaccination during Pregnancy

vaccination during pregnancy

The series "Guidelines for Dialogue on COVID-19 vaccination" comprises nine booklets in question-and-answer format for health personnel and vaccination teams fighting the disease on the front line, as well as for journalists and communicators in charge of the second essential front, that of information. The objective is to provide them with a simple, didactic and effective argument that facilitates the work of raising awareness of the importance of vaccines and simplifies the work of accompanying citizens in the process of making responsible decisions about health. To this end, these materials cover different topics, doubts and controversies about COVID-19, providing answers based on the most recent scientific evidence, in clear and accessible language, for use in health centers and in community vaccination campaigns. PAHO thus wishes to contribute to the effort that the Region of the Americas has undertaken against misinformation and the minority but counterproductive negationist theories that have become established in our societies and which, especially through the different forms of rejection of vaccines, hinder the eradication of this pandemic. This guide is based on the observation that pregnancy is one of the risk factors for COVID-19 and offers the necessary recommendations to help pregnant women go through this important stage of their lives with the best health guarantees.
