Video public service announcement featuring Dr. Yolanda Tinajero explains why pregnant people are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Changes to the body that occur during pregnancy make one more susceptible to respiratory infections, so it is important to get protection through COVID, flu, and TDAP vaccines. This video is part of The Conversation Between Us About Us campaign co-developed by the Kaiser Family Foundation's Greater Than COVID project and the Black Coalition Against COVID, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The campaign brings together doctors, nurses, researchers, and community health care workers to provide facts and dispel misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines. The video is available here: Why are pregnant people more at risk from COVID? | Greater than COVID
