CDC Recommends Pregnant Women Get COVID Vaccine Based on Unreviewed Study, Unverifiable Data

Many of the miscarriage cases reported (some are testimonial) in VAERS, tell heartbreaking stories of loss and sadness.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation that pregnant women be vaccinated for COVID was based on a yet-to-be-peer-reviewed paper and on data from the government-run v-safe system, which the public can’t access and therefore can’t verify.

None of the three manufacturers of the COVID vaccines being administered in the U.S. — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — completed clinical trials on pregnant women as a part of their Emergency Use Authorization applications to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In its application to the FDA for full approval — which was granted Monday — Pfizer said its “available data” on its vaccine was “insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy.”

Yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nevertheless recommends pregnant women get the vaccines — a recommendation the agency reaffirmed Aug. 11, based on the yet-to-be-peer-reviewed research paper — “Receipt of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines preconception and during pregnancy and risk of self-reported spontaneous abortions, CDC v-safe COVID-19 Vaccine Pregnancy Registry 2020-21.”

The paper’s authors, Zauche et al., found that in a group of 2,456 pregnant women, 14.1% miscarried during 6 to 19 weeks of gestation. This is the duration of time where such a miscarriage is medically termed a “spontaneous abortion.”

This compares to a U.S. average of spontaneous abortion between 10 to 20% for a similar timeframe.

It is at a minimum curious that the CDC would make vaccination policy recommendations based on an unreviewed manuscript. Typically, such a paper would be reviewed for scientific rigor and methodology by the authors’ research peers, and then published in a reputable, internationally recognized journal prior to such a recommendation.

It is also not clear this manuscript would withstand the rigors of peer review given that 89% of the study cohort consisted of medical professionals. This is certainly not a representative sample of U.S. women, as one would imagine that access to healthcare, including prenatal check-ups, would be much greater in the study sample than in the general population.

The study also did not account for 65 individuals who were unable to be contacted after initial enrollment in the cohort, nor did it account for 35 cases of pregnancy loss prior to six weeks gestation.

The Zauche et al. manuscript was based on the CDC’s V-safe database, which the public cannot access. CDC officials have rebuffed attempts to gain access to the database via the Freedom of Information Act, claiming privacy concerns of the database participants.
