Approved emergency use

India has approved emergency use of locally developed Covaxin and Covishield (Oxford-AstraZeneca) vaccines. The country launched its vaccine drive in early January. It has vaccinated nearly 30 million people so far – healthcare and frontline workers were given priority in the first phase. People over 60 and those who are between 45 and 59 but have other illnesses are now getting vaccinated. 

According to Indian Health Ministry, pregnant and lactating women should not be administered Covid-19 vaccine shots as they have not been part of any anti-coronavirus vaccine clinical trial so far.

Here is a list of country-wise guidance on which vaccines are being administered and what is the official stance around vaccination for pregnant women:
