As of May 8, 2021, a total of 135,968 pregnant women were identified in CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink. Only 22,197 (16.3%) had received ≥1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccination rates are lowest among Black and Hispanic women.

These findings indicate the need for improved outreach to and engagement with pregnant women, especially those from racial and ethnic minority groups who might be at higher risk for severe health outcomes because of COVID-19. In addition, providing accurate and timely information about COVID-19 vaccination to health care providers, pregnant women, and women of reproductive age can improve vaccine confidence and coverage by ensuring optimal shared clinical decision-making.
This is what she has to say about people of color and Covid vaccination:
“People of color are overrepresented in essential services industries- which means they have increased exposure; (they) are often low wage jobs that do not provide health insurance... And people of color have increased amounts of chronic stress that render them more likely to get certain diseases”.

(Nearly a year following vaccine production).

May 2021: Dr. Corbett addresses the AMA at their annual meeting. Here is a recording of her talk:

According to Dr. Corbett:

"We know (these vaccines) provide a strong and specific immune response."
"mRNA cannot affect DNA. That is a HARD STOP NO".
