Although pregnant women can be vaccinated against covid-19 for a few weeks, this process has not progressed at the expected pace. The Ministry of Health revealed the figures of pregnant women who have received immunization and only about 20 percent of the target population has applied at least one dose of the biological.

ccording to government records , as of August 10, 51,914 women had received a dose and 1,164 had the full schedule.

However, the target population is estimated to be 250,000 people.

The Ministry of Health recalled that the vaccine from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer is being applied to this population and the World Health Organization supports the studies that gave way to the immunization process in this group.

If they do not receive the immunization, they are at greater risk of contracting the virus and could have a premature delivery.
