Brazil temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca C-19 vaccine on a pregnant woman once a pregnant woman died due to C-19 vaccination with this vaccine type. Two Brazilian states banned the use of the vaccine for pregnant women.
Brasil NHSA (ANVISA) suggested that the AstraZeneca vaccine needs to be suspended immediately. ANVISA has released guidance after “constant monitoring of adverse events related to Covid-19 vaccine in use in the country.”

The state of Sao Paolo suspended the shot for pregnant women with medical conditions. Rio de Janeiro suspended the vaccine for pregnant women. The states cited ANVISA’s guidance as a factor in their pause of this vaccine application.
Rio de Janeiro Health Secretary Alexandre Chieppe stated that the pregnant woman died due to the vaccination.
He said the 35-year-old woman was in her 23rd week of pregnancy and died due to the vaccine. The cause of death was a hemorrhagic stroke on May 10, 10 days after the hospitalization.
No one knows if the woman had some previous health issues. ANVISA stated that her demise “was assessed as possibly related to the use of the vaccine.” Health authorities are still examining the cause of death.
AstraZeneca stated for Reuters that the vaccine clinical trials didn’t include pregnant women and lactating women. Also, it noted that studies in animals didn’t produce direct or indirect evidence of pregnancy harm and fetal development.
The British drug manufacturer collaborated with the Brazilian public health institute Oswaldo Cruz Foundation to deliver its shot to their country.
It is one of the three vaccines allowed for application in South America. Pfizer and Sinovac are allowed there too.
