Local doctor recommends COVID-19 vaccine for most pregnant women

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — According to one local doctor, data available so far shows COVID-19 vaccines are safe for pregnant women.

Dr. Laura Klein cares for high-risk pregnant women as medical director of maternal-fetal medicine at UCHealth Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.

During a press conference with the state health department, she acknowledged while the data regarding pregnant women receiving COVID-19 vaccines is very new, however, she said the information is promising.

“So far those data are very reassuring,” said Dr. Klein. “There’s no signs of any higher risks of pregnancy complications in women who get vaccinated. That includes early delivery, miscarriage, low birth weight.”

Dr. Klein said that’s based on 30,000 pregnant women who have documented their experience receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to the CDC.

“When patients ask me about COVID-19 vaccinations, I generally encourage them to get vaccinated,” she said.

While doctors are comfortable administering flu and Tdap vaccines to pregnant women, Klein says medical providers stay away from live-virus vaccines, like measles or chickenpox. None of the available COVID-19 vaccines are live-virus vaccines.

“Those antibodies are really protective for babies,” said Dr. Klein. “They cross the placenta and get in the baby’s bloodstream, protecting the baby in the first couple months of life to help them fight infection before their immune systems have fully matured.”

At the same Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment press conference, state leaders say five cases of the India variant have been identified in Mesa County. Investigators said none of the patients have traveled recently. Authorities are looking into how the variant got to Colorado. 

The announcement comes just two days after the Biden administration restricted travel to India over COVID-19 concerns.

    1. It’s been common knowledge for some time that boosters would probably be needed, just like flu boosters those of us intelligent enough to get them do so every year.
      And of course you don’t trust any experts. You’re obviously convinced you’re as much of a medical expert as Trump thinks he is.

      1. You are no medical expert just a child minded troll who thinks he knows everything now shoo little troll shoo shoo.

  1. Pregnant Women Should Not Get a COVID Vaccine

    If you or someone you love has received a COVID-19 vaccine and are experiencing side effects, be sure to report it, preferably to all three of these locations:27

    If you live in the U.S., file a report on VAERS
    Report the injury on, which is a nongovernmental adverse event tracker (you can file anonymously if you like)
    Report the injury on the Children’s Health Defense website

    What will it take to convince people that they are under attack by much more than a corona virus? It doesn’t require that much imagination to connect a few dots. For example, what picture do these three points begin to form: 1. the lethality of covid being nowhere near the levels it has been hyped to, threatening mostly those very people whose vulnerable condition is a product of corporate food ‘n medicine “health guidance” in the first place; 2. as addressed in this article, the serious health threats posed by these rushed, experimental covid “vaccines,” which, along with the insane policies governing their application, even reach into the womb to pose risks to the unborn; and 3. the high-funded, well-coordinated psy-op pressures being applied to get populations to take these experimental gene therapies in large numbers, pressures applied to all age groups, regardless of the degree of threat—or lack thereof—posed by covid.

    Even leaving aside all the other anomalies, incompetencies, deceptions and lies surrounding “pandemic” policies—policies that are obviously coordinated across various public and private institutions and protected from challenge by censorship—an unprejudiced consideration of just these three points gets one’s thinking somewhere into the neighborhood of either eugenics, or genocide, or both. If that seems way off the mark, it is undoubtedly closer than the official characterizations of what is happening. The imagination strains to contort just those three conditions into anything resembling a health policy—even an indifferent, bureaucratic health policy—and it completely gives out trying to fit them into any kind of expression, on the part of the authorities, of compassion or care for the well-being of their fellow human beings.

    The Emperor is NAKED but the populace keep on viewing him as being fully dressed – the hallucinatory aspect of this commercially exploitative agenda has more potency than LSD and ayahuasca combined – to have entranced so many people by false messages is beyond belief – the sleepwalkers that compose human pre-consciousness are like dry sponges sucking in some moisture – the TV offers substance to an otherwise totally EMPTY cranial cavity – how much dumber can the dumb become?? – the Guinness Book of Records should have a section listing the dumbest records – this Covid Scam would be hard to beat

    1. All from another person who’s obviously convinced he’s as much of a medical expert as Trump thinks he is.
      You need to find a cure for your verbal diarrhea.

      1. You need to grow up and and get a life. I’m sick and tired of your incessant whining Dr. Reality. You do not know everything and neither do I…so get over yourself. Like I said…in the end we will see who is standing!

  2. Yahoo Sports
    Warriors forward Damion Lee, despite being fully vaccinated, said he contracted COVID-19

  3. Im just waiting…..In 10 yrs your going to see lawyer commercials on t.v. saying if you took the covid-19 vaccination you may be entitled to compensation……. just you wait.

  4. The latest data on COVID-19 vaccine side effects suggest governments are already operating under this horrific utilitarian ideology.

    How else do you explain the fact that the European Union’s vaccine injury reporting system had logged 330,218 adverse event reports, including 7,766 deaths, as of April 17, 2021,8 and the U.S. reporting system had logged 118,902 adverse event reports as of April 23, including 3,544 deaths and 12,618 serious injuries,9 yet all of these injuries and deaths are simply ignored and the call for everyone to get their jab continues unabated — all while bashing vaccine hesitancy as a mental illness, intellectual deficit or act of domestic terrorism?!

    In a utilitarian system, you cease to be an individual with rights to autonomous decision-making and become a tool of the government, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing here. Government has apparently decided that some people — quite a few people, apparently — are expendable, which is the exact converse of what they’re telling us publicly.
