Both of the articles were published in JAMA on Feb 8 and both have PDFs
Reasoning appears to be
1) Known COVID-19 problems if pregnant
2) Seem that influenza vaccine has minimal problems during pregnancy
3) Suspect (based on ZERO data) that COVID-19 vaccines will have similar minimal problems
1) WHO recommends AGAINST vaccination while pregnant
2) Only 5% of the vaccine participants were >65, yet most COVID-19 deaths are >65
3) Vaccine trials excluded those under age 16, yet they, like pregnany women, might soon be given a COVID-19 vaccine
COVID-19 mRNA Shots Are Legally Not Vaccines Mercola Feb 9, 2021
- By referring to COVID-19 vaccines as “vaccines” rather than gene therapies, the U.S. government is violating its 15 U.S. Code Section 41, which regulates deceptive practices in medical claims
- The mRNA injections are gene therapies that do not fulfill a single criteria or definition of a vaccine
- COVID-19 “vaccines” do not impart immunity or inhibit transmissibility of the disease.
- They only are designed to lessen your infection symptoms if or when you get infected.
- As such, these products do not meet the legal or medical definition of a vaccine
- By calling this experimental gene therapy technology a “vaccine,” they are circumventing liability for damages that would otherwise apply
- " pregnant people are at increased risk of hospitalization and have a 3-fold adjusted relative risk of needing intensive care (10.5 vs 3.9/1000 cases) and mechanical ventilation (2.9 vs 1.1/1000 cases) compared with age-matched nonpregnant individuals."
