Pregnant women who are fully vaccinated are now eligible for the newly-authorized Pfizer COVID-19 booster shot.
The announcement comes after a pandemic record. Just last month, at least 20 expectant moms died from COVID in the U.S.
This includes Bianca Carrington. In an interview with CBS news, her husband Austin Carrington says he got vaccinated, but his pregnant wife waited. Within days of being admitted to the hospital, Bianca and their unborn baby had died.
“The last time she was conscious, she wasn’t able to speak. She just took my hands and put them on her belly. And I just, I just said, yeah I know, I know, I heard,” Austin Carrington said.
