In this letter to Professor Khalil we raise serious concerns with the conclusions presented in her recent publication in Nature Medicine, entitled “Systematic review and meta-analysis of the effectiveness and perinatal outcomes of COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy”, which were recently publicised widely to doctors and the public under headlines claiming that COVID-19 vaccination reduces the risk of stillbirths.
We argue that the data presented does not support these conclusions, and challenge the message of reassurance regarding COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness and safety in pregnancy. We request an urgent retraction of this paper for the reasons laid out in detail in our letter.
