Summary in foreign language
On June 18, 2020, WHO presented a strategic framework to ensure the equitable allocation of scarce COVID-19 resources, including vaccines.1 Health-care workers, people older than 65 years, and people with cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer, diabetes, or obesity will be prioritised for initial vaccination. Pregnant women do not appear to constitute a high-priority group, despite representing a cohort who are at increased risk for severe complications of COVID-19. A growing body of evidence exists to suggest that pregnant women are at a higher risk of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19, including increased risk of respiratory failure with the need for admission to intensive care and mechanical ventilation, compared with age-matched women who are not pregnant.2, 3 COVID-19 has also been associated with an increased rate of stillbirth.4
