Dr. Tara Shirazian, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at NYU Langone Health, joins TODAY to talk about the troubling surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations among pregnant women. “In general, pregnant women are a more vulnerable population of patients,” she says. “Having a COVID vaccine really arms and protects them against severe disease.” She adds that there is no evidence that the vaccine affects fertility or increases risk of adverse events during pregnancy.
