Two pregnant women died from H1N1 during the week of Oct. 25 in North Carolina, Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Renee McCoy said Monday.
It was unclear which counties the women lived in. The state does not provide a breakdown of deaths by county.
Pregnant women are considered priority, at-risk groups for the H1N1 vaccine. Other at-risk groups are those who live with or care for children 6 months or younger, health care workers, people aged 6 months through 24 years, and people with chronic health problems or compromised immune systems.
