Can Breastfeeding Women Get COVID-19 Vaccine?

Can Breastfeeding Women Get COVID-19 Vaccine?

First of all, let me remind that:

COVID-19 vaccine studies have not been designed for the inclusion of breastfeeding women.

Since vaccines have not been studied in breastfeeding women, there is currently no available data on the following poıints:

• Safety of COVID-19 vaccines in breastfeeding individuals
• Effects of the vaccine on the breastfed baby
• Vaccine effects on milk

CDC states that COVID-19 vaccines do not pose a risk to breast-feeders or their babies, depending on how they work in the body and their mechanism of action.

And that’s why it’s recommended by the CDC that breastfeeding women should get the COVID-19 vaccine...

Recent reports have shown that breast milk of people vaccinated with COVID-19 mRNA vaccines have antibodies that can help to protect their babies.

However, more data are needed to determine how and how much protection these antibodies might provide to the baby…

Many breastfeeding women, such as healthcare workers, fall into priority categories for vaccination.

The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine recommends that those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine should not stop breastfeeding…

A similar recommendation comes from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists as well…

Meanwhile,

If a person gets pregnant after the administration of first dose of the mRNA vaccine, it is recommended that the second dose be administered as scheduled on the appointed date with no deviation in timing…

Vaccines are a kind of health insurance for the upcoming potential infections ;

And they provide protection for the future before the disease picture appears.

To make a long story short, the matter is not to be sick & being protected under the shield of vaccines!!!
