The CDC walked back a statement from its director on the agency’s recommendation for COVID-19 vaccines during pregnancy, @byKateSmith reports.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention walked back a statement its director made on Friday about the agency’s recommendation surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy, clarifying that the agency’s recommendation for pregnant people considering the vaccine has not changed.
Speaking at a White House COVID-19 briefing on Friday, CDC head Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that the “CDC recommends that pregnant people receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” citing a new study that found no evidence to suggest that the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines pose risk during pregnancy.
On Tuesday, the agency walked back that recommendation. In an email to CBS News, a CDC spokesperson said the CDC’s guidance for pregnant people had not changed from its March recommendation, which is that “pregnant people are eligible and can receive a COVID-19 vaccine” and clarified that the guidance “has always been and remains CDC’s recommendation.”
