Written by FDM

The Minister of Health, Khalid Aït Taleb, announced the update of the recommendations with regards to the vaccination of pregnant women, in a letter addressed, on Tuesday, August 17, 2021, to the regional directors of health.

Khalid Aït Taleb specifies that pregnant women must be a priority target in vaccination given that “the data relating to the vaccination of pregnant women are starting to accumulate and are reassuring”.

Thus, the vaccination of all pregnant women, regardless of the term of their pregnancy will be accelerated. The same source specifies that the Sinopharm vaccine can be used on pregnant women, even during the 1st trimester. While those who are in the 2nd and 3rd trimester can be vaccinated with any vaccine available in Morocco.
