“The anti-Covid vaccine in pregnancy is safe and there are no risks, as scientific studies have shown, that the mRna fragments can ‘reach’ the fetus and much less ‘pass’ through the milk”. The position of gynecologists on the importance of vaccination in pregnant women is very clear, reaffirmed at Adnkronos Salute by Elsa Viora, president of the Italian Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (Sigo), who does not hide the fact that “many future mothers are afraid” and that these fears have “also been fueled by the lack of an official stance on the part of our health institutions”. But that reaffirms the appeal to “all future mothers or those who think they will become vaccinated”.
Today in the Corriere della Sera, Giuseppe Remuzzi, director of the Mario Negri institute, invited women to get vaccinated, explaining the reasons, starting with the increased risks for pregnant women who have to contract the disease.
President Sigo also wants to dampen fears or uncertainties, explaining from the scientific point of view that: “The fear of possible harm to the fetus”, due to the vaccine “has no biological plausibility, because the fragments of mRna are very small and have a very short life, therefore – explains the great genius was having found these lipid spheres in which to insert the mRna to get it into the cells, and then be immediately transcribed into Dna, the one that then stimulates the immune response. not to pass through the placenta because, in fact, it lasts very little, it does not even pass into the milk, as was shown by a very recent study “.
