White House coronavirus prediction: Pregnant women at risk
Since the start of the pandemic, a total of 131 pregnant women have died in the United States after contracting the disease, according to official data. Fauci noted that preliminary studies indicate that messenger RNA vaccines (the one from Pfizer and Moderna) are safe for pregnant women, and that the protective effect of vaccination is transmitted to the baby through breast milk.
Studies show that up to six weeks after vaccination, breast milk contains a considerable amount of antibodies against COVID-19, so it is highly recommended that women who are breastfeeding get vaccinated against the coronavirus as soon as possible. Filed Under: White House Coronavirus Prediction.
