COVID Vaccines and Pregnancy: Common Sense vs. Confusion
In a dramatic departure from medical ethics standards in place for decades, the CDC has been recommending that pregnant women get the new experimental COVID vaccines, even though pregnant women were excluded from all the clinical trials and we have no safety data for use in pregnancy. How does COVID affect pregnancy? Flu and whooping cough vaccines are used safely in pregnancy, but are there differences between the traditional vaccines and the experimental COVID vaccines? What are some of the risks for the mother and the baby with the COVID vaccines? Why is pregnancy a greater risk situation for the blood clotting risks with the COVID vaccines? What’s the difference between natural immunity from a COVID infection and the immunity after a COVID vaccine?
These questions and more will be discussed with our physician host, DrLee4America, and our two highly specialist physician guests: Dr. Richard Blumrick and Dr. Raphael Stricker.
Dr. Richard Blumrick is a Duke fellowship-trained in Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist who did his fellowship research on the use of lipid coatings to increase transport across the placenta, and is Chairman of Obstetrics at a major hospital in a large southwestern city. Dr. Blumrick specializes in treating women who have medical conditions which then become pregnant, and effects on the baby that can arise from the medical diseases or the drugs used to treat them, as well as healthy women who develop medical complications while pregnant.
Dr. Raphael Stricker is a specialist in Internal Medicine trained at Columbia University in New York, with subspecialty training in hematology, oncology, immunology, and immunotherapy from California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. He is currently the Medical Director of the Alan E. Beer Medical Center for Reproductive Immunology in Los Gatos, CA. He is past President of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) and a board member of LymeDisease.org. He has testified at Lyme disease hearings before the California State Senate and the United States Congress. He has authored and published over 200 medical journal articles, abstracts and letters. His research interests include immunologically-triggered miscarriages, tickborne diseases, and COVID-19. He is the recipient of the AMA Award for Physician Excellence and an Outstanding Reviewer Award from the Annals of Internal Medicine.
