Welcome to Zika Update, information you need about Zika. Today, we’re discussing CDC’s U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry. This registry helps CDC learn more about the effects of Zika virus infection during pregnancy and monitor the growth and development of babies whose mothers had Zika while pregnant.
Women in the United States who have laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection during pregnancy, and their babies, can be included in the registry. CDC is collaborating with state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments to collect health information about Zika and pregnant women and their babies. The identity of everyone in the registry and the information collected will be kept secure. There’s no cost and no additional paperwork, appointments, or tests.
