Because Quebec records the fewest cases of COVID-19 on a daily basis, Dr. Isabel Bouocaran says she sees a worrying trend among her pregnant patients.
The CHU Sainte-Justine gynecologist-obstetrician says that patients who once wanted the first cocktail COVID-19 vaccine are either waiting to be vaccinated after giving birth or choose to skip filming altogether.
“We have to respect their choice, but it is really possible that they understand why it is being offered to them, that the whole scientific community thinks it is safe, it is not normal,” he told CBC. Dawn,
Officials are concerned that Quebecers’ pregnant fluctuations could expose them to COVIDS, just as public health precautions are eased and the delta version increases.
The lowest age groups currently vaccinated in Quebec are young people aged 18 to 29 (69%) and young people aged 30 to 39 (74%).
In a statement to CBC News, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health and Social Services said that for some pregnant women, not being afraid of the vaccine could be one of the reasons for the low turnout.
Pregnant women in Quebec received the right to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on April 28.
Dangers of self-sufficiency
Dr. Donald Wyn, an infectious disease specialist at McGill University Health Center, says the state should not wait for mothers to become complacent as it gradually reopens.
“It must be remembered that everything looks good because “Vaccine,” he said.
The vaccine protects not only the mother but also the baby, which will be protected in the womb by the mother’s immune system during the first six to 12 months of life.
“If the mother does not pass COVID antibodies to the baby, the baby will become a sitting duck to get COVID infection when they are born,” he said. “And who knows when they will be born, what options will be circulated.”
She urges expectant mothers not to try for expectant mothers, as unvaccinated pregnant women who receive COVID-19 are more likely to need resuscitation and have a premature birth.
Pregnant patients are more vulnerable to catching COVID because their immune systems are suppressed; if they catch it, their survival rate is worse than other people their age if they have a pre-existing health condition.
New mother Angela MacDonald received her first dose in April, just two weeks after giving birth to her son Charlie.
Her biggest concern when it came to filming was how it could affect her baby’s health while she was breastfeeding, but after doing her own research, she realized that the benefits of the vaccine outweighed its side effects.
“The positive side of vaccination is the peace of mind,” said MacDonald. “Making sure we do our best to keep our best foot forward in keeping COVID away from our home as well as from our family home.”
“If you are someone who is vaccinated on your own, you make the choice yourself, but in this case you make the choice not only for yourself but also for your child.”
According to the Regional Institute of Public Health (INSPQ), the first 13,360 doses of pregnant women were given between December 14, 2020 and July 8, 2021.
Although it is difficult to know exactly how many pregnant women there are in Quebec at the moment, there are an average of 82,000 births a year.
Dr. Boucoiran reminds fluctuating patients that although the COVID-19 vaccine literature is fairly new, the vaccines are safe for pregnant women.
“They feel that there is not enough safety because we do not have 10 years of experience with COVID vaccines և pregnancy, but … we generally have a lot of experience with vaccinations during pregnancy,” she said.
“I think the vaccine can help give them some security in the COVID situation, and some action can be taken to protect them.”
