Pregnant and breastfeeding women will not be vaccinated at this time.
Obese people are also more prone to COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases.
Director of Women's Health Dr Adesh Sirjusingh attended Saturday's Ministry of Health COVID-19 update and said that in 2020, during the height of the pandemic lockdown, there were over 15,000 deliveries in the public and private health care system.
"At this time we are not vaccinating against COVID-19 in our pregnant or breastfeeding women," Sirjusingh said.
Sirjusingh said that since the start of the pandemic last year, some 41 pregnant women were diagnosed with COVID-19 and were all successfully treated at the public Regional Health Authorities.
Sirjusingh said that private hospitals were mandated to direct COVID-19 positive pregnant women to the public hospitals and not treat them themselves.
Pregnant women who fit into the over 35 and overweight category, those who suffer from high blood pressure or hypertension are at a higher risk of progressing to severe COVID-19 symptoms and would need to be hospitalised.
Sirjusingh also assured that the vaccine does not interfere with fertility but advised that women who are already in the higher-risk category to "get healthy" before attempting to get pregnant.
Sirjusingh also advised that breastfeeding women, who are tested positive for COVID-19 can continue breastfeeding their babies but insisted on the precautionary wearing of masks and sanitizing.
Dr Avery Hinds said that as of March 5 at 4 pm, there were 98,523 tests completed. Of that number, 7,729 tested positive and 7,490 recovered.
There are currently 100 active cases and of those cases, 78 people are in home self-quarantine.
There are 15 people in hospitals and five in the step-down facility.
There are 441 people in state and state-supervised facilities.
