Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Murashko announced a decision to vaccinate pregnant women against coronavirus infection. TASS reports.

According to him, the issue will be resolved in the coming weeks. He stressed that cases are recorded when the disease caused by the coronavirus in pregnant women is difficult. “Our specialists are now considering a package of documents to obtain new scientific data on the use of the Sputnik V vaccine in pregnant women,” the head of the department said.

Murashko noted that the number of pregnant women who are currently observed in connection with this disease is about ten thousand people.

Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor reported that Russian vaccines against coronavirus have passed the necessary tests to assess the effect on the ability to have children. The experts assured that the negative consequences of vaccination were not revealed during the relevant tests, and the vaccination is not a contraindication for pregnancy. “There is no evidence that any vaccine, including the coronavirus vaccine, can affect fertility in women or men,” the ministry concluded.
