WHO recommends against pregnant women getting Moderna vaccine

Israel’s Health Ministry has in recent days advised pregnant women to get the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine after a number of women expecting a baby fell seriously ill with COVID-19, sparking concerns.

“There is no evidence of harm resulting from vaccination during the entire pregnancy,” the Health Ministry said.
