Up-to-date evidence-based information on vaccines in pregnancy

A regularly updated, comprehensive database and synthesis of published literature related to COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy.


Maternal interventions vigilance harmonization in low- and middle-income countries: Stakeholder meeting report; Amsterdam, May 1–2, 2018

Although major reductions in maternal and child mortality were achieved in the Millennium Development Goals era, progress must be accelerated to meet Sustainable Development Goals health targets by 2030.

Mapping the landscape of global programmes to evaluate health interventions in pregnancy: the need for harmonised approaches, standards and tools

Pregnant women and their babies are among the populations most vulnerable to untoward health outcomes. Yet current standards for evaluating health interventions cannot be met during pregnancy because of lack of adequate evidence.

Maternal Immunization Safety Monitoring in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A Roadmap for Program Development

It is a critical time to formulate an organized and comprehensive approach to monitoring safety of maternal immunizations in low- and middle-income countries and thereby track safety and effectiveness to ensure program success and public confidence.

Maternal and neonatal data collection systems in low- and middle-income countries: scoping review protocol

A recent analysis reported that most vaccine pharmacovigilance systems in low- and middle-income countries consist of spontaneous (passive) adverse event reporting. Thus, LMICs need effective active surveillance approaches, such as pregnancy registries.

Advisory Board Technical Consultation for COVAX Maternal Immunization Work Group: Maternal Immunization Post-Licensure Safety Needs for Pregnant Women and their Infants

The COVAX Maternal Immunization Work Group (WG) was established with the goal of developing a report that identifies and provides recommendations on COVID-19 candidate vaccine(s) for potential use in pregnant women.

Maternal and neonatal data collection systems in low- and middle-income countries for maternal vaccines active safety surveillance systems: A scoping review

Our study’s main objective was to identify existing perinatal data collection systems in low- and middle-income countries that collect individual information on maternal and neonatal health outcomes and could be developed to inform active safety surveillance of novel vaccines for use during pregnancy.

COVID-19 and pregnancy: An umbrella review of clinical presentation, vertical transmission, and maternal and perinatal outcomes

We conducted an overview of systematic reviews (SRs) summarizing the best evidence regarding the effect of COVID-19 on maternal and child health following Cochrane methods and PRISMA statement for reporting.

Using maternal and neonatal data collection systems for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines active safety surveillance in low- and middle-income countries: an international modified Delphi study

Excluding pregnant women from studies on vaccination in order to provide protection from theoretical risks is not warranted and can prevent this population from potentially beneficial inmunizations.
