Newly Released Emails Show Health Officials Concerned with Pregnant Women Having ‘Adverse Event Issue’

Newly released emails show that U.S. health officials were concerned about pregnant women having an “adverse event issue” due to Covid mRNA vaccines as early as 2021.

According to the emails, obtained by the legal watchdog Judicial Watch, officials with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) exchanged emails in May 2021 about language about administering the Covid shots with other vaccines.

“Please let me know if you want to connect about the adverse event issue later today. Seems like work is still ongoing, but let me know,” Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, wrote to colleagues.

Dr. Amanda Cohn, chief medical officer of the CDC’s National Center for Immunizations and Respiratory Diseases, replied to the email.

“We have a meeting with Rochelle at 3:30 about if we should say anything or wait until we have more definitive information … I will let you know where we land,” Cohn wrote. Dr. Rochelle Walensky is the head of the CDC.

“I’m not sure there is a right answer,” Cohn added.

Jonathan Mogford, a medical researcher from the United Kingdom, emailed top health officials at Health & Human Services (HHS) and the FDA in December 2020 expressing concern over patients with a history of allergic reactions receiving the Covid shots.

The subject header for the email was redacted.

The emails were obtained by the nonprofit Judicial Watch, which sued the U.S. government for failing to appropriately respond to a Freedom of Information Act request for messages regarding adverse events, deaths, and/or injuries caused by the COVID-19 vaccines. Adverse events include health conditions such as arthritis or heart inflammation.

No other emails about the “adverse event issue” were included in the latest batch of emails disclosed by Judicial Watch.

The original clinical trials performed on pregnant women did not include enough information “to make conclusions about the safety of the” Covid shots manufactured by Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson, according to the FDA documents.

Authorities have since relied on survellance data, including a CDC study, which was corrected in October 2021.

Pfizer conducted a post-authorization trial of its vaccine in pregnant women that was labeled completed in mid-2022 but results have not been publicly reported.

“We think that part of the reason is because the results are so bad,” Linda Wastila, a professor at the University of Maryland, told The Epoch Times.

Judicial Watch remarked upon the release of the newly obtained emails.

“It again took a lawsuit for the Biden administration to hand over, albeit heavily redacted, information regarding the safety of the COVID vaccines that the public has every right to know,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “This disturbing batch of new documents have uncovered a secret confidentiality agreement tied to COVID vaccine safety issues and emails that raise new questions about the vaccines and pregnancy.”
