Viki Male is Dr Victoria Male, a Senior Lecturer in Reproductive Immunology based in the Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction at Imperial College London.
James Thorp MD: Vicki Are you aware that http://UK.Gov specifically states on their website that they DO NOT RECOMMEND the C19 “vaccines” in pregnancies & breastfeeding? The link is in our recent publication. I respect your opinions. As a follower of Christ I seek TRUTH at all cost. I am the <= 1% of humans that HAS and WILL publicly admit I am wrong and repent with an academic metanoia if I see data. I commit to being collegial & respectful if you debate me. I think this would be a terrific step forward. Why has NOBODY been willing to debate me over the last 3 years?
Viki Male: Hi James. That’s not true. The UK government offers and recommends getting vaccinated or boosted against COVID in pregnancy. Here’s the link for you…
The Vigilant Fox: More Lethal Than Abortion Pills: Horrifying Miscarriage Rates With the COVID Injection In January of 2021, the New England Journal of Medicine came out with an article that stated that pregnant women who got the shot did not have a higher rate of spontaneous miscarriage. However, when you look at the data, they lumped women in their third trimester into the first-trimester group and assessed whether or not they had a first-trimester spontaneous miscarriage. When you take that cohort out, the rate of miscarriage was 82%, right in line with findings from the Pfizer documents. Dr. Elizabeth Mumper: “For a first-trimester woman to get this injection, they have more of a chance of having a miscarriage or stillbirth than if they were to actually take an abortifacient.”
Viki Male: Don’t forget that the miscarriage rate in V-safe was no higher than normal. The claim made here forgets to include participants in V-safe who were still pregnant. More information about the error here… 1/
And here are the miscarriage rates in V-safe (once there was enough follow up to determine them accurately). The miscarriage rate among those who have been vaccinated against COVID is the same as normal. 2/2
Simone Gold: There has been a 4070% increase in miscarriages and stillbirths since the release of the experimental mRNA vaccines, according to VAERS data. Please retweet. Let’s save as many lives as possible.
Viki Male: It’s important to distinguish between an increase in *reports* and an increase in pregnancy loss. There’s no evidence for an increase in pregnancy loss (or any other pregnancy problem) following vaccination… 1/
48,868 babies followed for first 120 days of life. Does being born after a #CovidVaccine booster in #pregnancy protect against hospitalisation for COVID?
Yes! With 53% effectiveness compared to two doses only. /1
Other important findings… Protection is greater when the booster dose is given later in pregnancy Protection wanes as babies get older, with no significant protection after 90 days, in this study. 2/
Viki Male: The miscarriage rate following COVID vaccination in pregnant women is the same as normal – between 12.5 and 18.7%. Claims that it is higher than normal are circulating (again). They are based on the miscarriage rate after seeing a heartbeat on a scan. But we can’t apply this rate to all pregnancies.
Eric Burnett, MD: Just so you know, this would mean there would be more miscarriages than actual pregnancies. This is dumb…
Viki Male: #CovidVaccination in pregnancy protects #babies after birth. But what if you get vaccinated *after* your baby is born?
Canada: Test-negative case control. Vaccination of mothers after birth was 73% protective vs delta infection and 13% vs omicron in babies 1/
Protection against babies going to hospital with omicron was higher – 36% This effect is called cocooning and has been observed for other vaccines. Vaccinated parents are less likely to catch and transmit infections to their babies.
Nice work @canuckIDpharm !
Viki Male: The miscarriage rate following COVID vaccination in pregnancy is the same as normal – between 12.5 and 18.7%. Claims that it is higher than normal are circulating. These are based on misconceptions that the miscarriage rate is lower than it actually is.
Deborah Cole: And as a woman, can I say that I am personally horrified that you would recommend that any woman take any experimental product during pregnancy!? I’ll pass on being your human guinea pig. Thank you very much.
Viki Male: As a woman, I was pleased to have the chance to protect myself and my babies by getting the vaccines my midwife recommended. There’s a very extensive evidence base supporting flu, COVID and whooping cough vaccination in pregnancy – nobody is a guinea pig.
Deborah Cole: “Babies”: You had multiple babies during COVID? That seems unlikely I have no beef with well-tested, tried & true vaccines. But mRNA is not a normal vax, it’s experimental Gene Therapy. Any woman who was instructed to take it during pregnancy unknowingly played Russian Roulette.
Viki Male: I had my kids before the pandemic, but I was still glad to have the vaccines that my midwife recommended at the time – particularly with respect to my eldest who was born in the 2014 whooping cough outbreak.
Elise Atkin: This is a shockingly bad reply to her tweet. You just sound like your grasping at straws. I believe the thread is about MRNA. Best you stay in track.
Deborah Cole: Oh well, that’s good enough for me! I guess I’ll just take your word for it then Actually, maybe not: I’m 4 kids wiser & know about DES, thalidomide, etc. No way you can tell me it’s safe to inject myself with mRNA while pregnant. I’ll wait & watch for a generation first…
Viki Male: I don’t expect anyone to take my word for anything. Links to the data so you can look for yourself are in the thread I was retweeting but here they are again for you.

COVID vaccines and breastfeeding: what the data say
The vaccines do not pass through breast milk, but antibodies do — providing hope that breastfed babies might have some level of protection.
