Miscarriage queries answered

The Food & Health Bureau today said there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination will increase the risk of miscarriage for recipients.   It made the remarks in response to media enquiries on the number of miscarriage cases involving people who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines.   From April 12 to May 9, there were 396 miscarriage cases for those without a vaccination record while the number of miscarriage cases for those who had a vaccination record was nine, according to the Hospital Authority's information.   There is so far no clinical evidence the miscarriage cases were caused by vaccines, the bureau emphasised.   It added that the overall rate of miscarriage in Hong Kong is similar to that recorded in the past three years. http://dlvr.it/RzhT7m
