Former Democratic California Rep. Katie Hill tweeted that she is experiencing minor symptoms after testing positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.
Hill said she contracted the virus despite taking precautions including receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and booster and wearing masks.
I’m boosted and got COVID and am now quarantined for Christmas while almost 8 months pregnant and though my symptoms are mild I really wish I’d cancelled my plans for the couple weeks before this so stay safe out there, folks.— Katie Hill (@KatieHill4CA) December 18, 2021
“Though my symptoms are mild I really wish I’d cancelled my plans for the couple weeks before this so stay safe out there, folks,” Hill tweeted.
The former congresswoman is nearly eight months pregnant and will now quarantine for Christmas.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated pregnant women should get the vaccine. However, a Science, Public Health Policy, and the Law study released in November 2021 questions the safety of vaccines during pregnancy.
“We suggest the immediate withdrawal of mRNA vaccine use in pregnancy and those breastfeeding, alongside the withdrawal of mRNA vaccines to children or those of child-bearing age in the general population, until more convincing data relating to the safety and long-term impacts on fertility, pregnancy and reproduction are established in these groups,” the study states.
