What do pregnant women need to know?

As of Aug. 14, 76.2% of pregnant people were unvaccinated.

Pregnant women with COVID-19 are 15 times more likely to die, 14 times more likely to need to be intubated and 22 times more likely to have preterm birth, according to an August JAMA Network Open study.

Vaccine studies on pregnant women began in February, and evidence has shown no increased risk of miscarriage.

There's also no indication COVID vaccines put fertility at risk, said Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a gynecologist and professor at the Yale University School of Medicine.
