On Wednesday, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a health advisory to increase COVID-19 vaccinations among women who are pregnant, recently pregnant or trying to become pregnant to prevent serious illnesses and death.

According to the CDC, only 31% of pregnant people have been vaccinated against COVID-19, according to its data. Despite the fact that more pregnant women are now vaccinated, the CDC has stated that the number of pregnant mothers vaccinations has been lower than the rest of the population.

According to a recent study that indicated heightened risk for miscarriage, pregnant women should be vaccinated against COVID-19 in August, according to the health agency.

In addition to the risks of severe illness and death for pregnant individuals, the CDC says that there is a higher risk of preterm birth in COVID-19 infected individuals.

In its newest statement, the health agency revealed data that indicated that about 97% of pregnant women hospitalized with coronavirus were unvaccinated.
