Can a breastfeeding woman get vaccinated against COVID-19?

Yes, women who are breastfeeding can take the vaccine when it becomes available to them.

None of the currently approved vaccines use the live virus, so there is no risk of passing the virus to the baby through breastmilk.

There is also some evidence that, after vaccination, antibodies are found in breastmilk, which may help protect the baby against COVID-19.
