Dr. John Sherman Is Making Headlines!

FMC Science and Georgetown OB-GYN's very own Dr. Sherman was interviewed by CBS about a new study that reveals that COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women can offer protection to newborns.

In this pregnancy population, what happens is the mom gets the vaccine and the body makes an immune response. We know that that antibody pass via breastmilk and via the placenta to the baby.
