From warning against mRNA vaccinations for pregnant women, to a call to consider risks vs. benefits, to urging all pregnant women to get vaccinated–all in one year.

The U.K. Government’s very own Pfizer documentation put it plainly:
COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 is not recommended during pregnancy…
This clear advice was posted December 24, 2020 on the government website, relaying Pfizer’s own documentation at the time.
Here is a screenshot of that public position, as captured in The Wayback Machine web archive, here:
One week later, they updated their statement. And we can spot some differences. Here’s a screenshot of that updated version (again, from the Wayback archives) for your convenience:
Notice the difference? In just one week, they updated the notice from not recommended for pregnant women, to the ambiguous statement above.
In the months and years that have followed, here in Canada, and in the US, and elsewhere, the public health authorities have been promoting vaccination to pregnant and breastfeeding women. Take this Government of Canada website announcement, a statement from Dr. Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Office:
…The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), other expert guidance bodies, and professional medical societies in Canada and around in the world are aligned in recommending vaccination against COVID-19 to protect pregnant and recently pregnant people and their babies. This includes the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), which recommends that all individuals who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant should receive COVID-19 vaccines, during any trimester of the pregnancy and/or while breastfeeding…
But, just how can this be? Is the science different here, than there? Can a vaccine be safe for Canadians, but unsafe for Brits? Are safety concerns so varied, from one continent to the next? What’s going on?
The next passage under ‘Pregnancy’ is ‘Breast-feeding’ and look how that one changes, from one week to the next. On December 24 the notice warns about potential unknown and harmful effects of the vaccine from transfer via breastfeeding:
A risk to the newborns/infants cannot be excluded…
And yet, here we have our Dr. Tam affirming that the mRNA can pass antibodies through the umbilical cord to the fetus, but that’s all good, as it provides babies with protection:
It should be noted that Pfizer’s grounds to okay pregnant uptake of the mRNA vaccine is based strictly on the outcome of their testing on rats:
But wait. There’s more to this saga. Some tin-hat (bless her soul) must have filed a Freedom of Information Request regarding the safety of vaccines in pregnancy:
And the response might surprise you. Dated March 8, 2021:
The current advice from Public Health England is that the vaccines are not routinely recommended for those who are pregnant because although the available data from non-clinical studies have not raised any safety concerns, the limited data in this population is insufficient to recommend their routine use. However the potential benefits of vaccination may be important for those who are at very high risk of catching the infection or those with clinical conditions that put them at high risk of suffering serious complications from COVID-19…
Shortly thereafter, in April 2021 the UK government updated their vaccine for pregnancy policy once again:
This was an advisory generally in favour of the vaccination for pregnant women. But, with some reservations:
The advice, published in Public Health England’s Green Book, a clinical professional guide for vaccinators in the UK, still advises that pregnant women should discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with their clinician, including the latest evidence on safety and which vaccines they should receive.
Thanks to those lab rat tests, you will find the following statement on the UK government’s website, same as it is here, and … everywhere? Not only are the reservations gone, but now the appeal has become … urgent:
Yes, just as the virus transmuted over time into lesser and lesser riskier mutations, so did the health policy narrative transmute as to the safety of those jabs for pregnant women. They shifted their claims from an outright warning against vaccination, to how about a risk-benefit analysis?, to urging all pregnant women to get the vax. This amounts to a complete 180 degree reversal, in one short year, of Pfizer’s own stated policy, as pumped by the U.K. government, and our Canadian government, and countless other jurisdictions the world over, regarding the safety of their mRNA experimental concoctions on pregnant women and their children.
The question now becomes, I suppose: Who you gonna believe?
