National Zika Pregnancy Registry

Texas has reported 187 individuals into the CDC’s Zika Pregnancy Registry. The registry includes pregnant women with laboratory evidence of Zika infection and their infants, regardless of laboratory evidence. Texas provides data to the Zika Pregnancy Registry weekly.

The registry casts a wider net – beyond reported Zika cases – to track and follow pregnancies that may have been impacted by Zika.
