NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Center for Disease Control issued a warning for pregnant women to get the vaccine after seeing a spike in cases in this group.
As of right now, more than 125,000 lab-confirmed COVID cases have been reported in pregnant women nationwide.
Of those cases, 22,000 have been sent to the hospital, and at least 161 have died.
Health officials said the majority of the pregnant women dealing with complications while battling COVID are those not vaccinated.
Here locally, Vanderbilt University Medical Center said they are seeing several cases of unvaccinated mothers-to-be.
The CDC urges any woman who is pregnant or considering getting pregnant to have a conversation with their doctor about getting the vaccine.
