      CDC scientists use the US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry to collect information to help families affected by Zika virus infection.


      A doctor decides that a pregnant woman should be tested for Zika virus. →

      A pregnant woman provides blood and urine samples to be tested for Zika virus. →

      The laboratory tests her samples for Zika virus and notifies her doctor who informs the woman of her results. →

      If she tests positive (meaning she has Zika virus), her doctor’s office securely sends her medical information to the health department. →

      The health department collects the baby’s medical information until its second birthday. →

      The health department sends the information securely to CDC’s US Zika Pregnancy & Infant Registry. →

      • Update clinical guidance for providing care to families affected by Zika virus.
