Dia is expecting her first child with husband Vaibhav Rekhi. The couple tied the nuptial knot in the month of February.On Monday, Dia shared a piece of advice about COVID-19 vaccination with all the expecting mothers. The actress said that she has been advised by the doctors to not take the jab as it has not been clinically tested on pregnant women.
This is really important. Must read and also note that none of the vaccinations currently being used in India have been tested on pregnant and lactating mothers. My doctor says we cannot take these vaccines until required clinical trials have been done. https://t.co/eDtccY54Z1— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) May 16, 2021
