There has been a 366% increase in miscarriages in the last six weeks due to the COVID-19 vaccine.

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of miscarriage.

There is no scientific evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of miscarriage.The Daily Expose, a U.K. website that claims to base its investigations on official data, states that the COVID-19 vaccines have led to an exponential increase in miscarriages in the last six weeks. However, the data mentioned by the website misses essential context. There is no evidence to suggest that the COVID-19 vaccines have increased the risk of miscarriage and therefore, the claim is false.

On March 21, 2021, The Daily Expose published an article claiming that COVID-19 vaccines increase the risk of losing an unborn child by "366% in just six weeks." The website points to official figures from the Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to explain the increase. According to Reuters, the website states that after taking the COVID-19 vaccination, six miscarriages were reported between December 2020 and January 2021. In contrast, there were 28 miscarriages between January and March 2021. So The Daily Expose notes that an increase of 22 miscarriages amounts to an exponential rise of 366 percent. However, Reuters rightly points out that the website misleads the public by failing to disclose the increase in the number of vaccines administered.

Speaking to Reuters, the MHRA explained that as the number of vaccines administered increased, the number of women of child-bearing age taking the vaccine also rose from 665,424 to 2,146,866. In addition, the health regulatory affirmed that there was "no elevated risk of miscarriage" after a COVID-19 vaccine.

A study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in March 2021 found that the mRNA vaccine was safe to administer to pregnant women. In addition, countries, including the U.S. and the U.K., are safely vaccinating pregnant women with the mRNA vaccines.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
