Partially-Vaccinated Woman Gives Birth To Baby With COVID Antibodies

(WABC) — A woman in Florida is believed to be the first to give birth to a baby with COVID antibodies.

The Boca Raton woman received a single dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Three weeks later, doctors say she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

They say her cord blood had antibodies against COVID.

Doctors hope this leads to further studies of maternal COVID vaccinations to protect babies as well.
