Ontario’s move to prioritize pregnant women for COVID vaccine lauded


The president of the Ontario Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is applauding the province’s move to include pregnant women on its priority list of recipients in the next phase of its COVID-19 vaccination plan. Dr. Constance Nasello, the group’s president, said it’s a big win for pregnant women and for public health. The decision, she said, reflects increasing evidence that vaccines are safe for pregnant women and that those infected with COVID-19 while pregnant run a higher risk of being hospitalized and requiring intensive care.
