Covid-19 Vaccine Provides Antibodies To Lactating Mothers; Helps Infants To Fight Illness

The study by the University of Florida suggested that breast milk of lactating moms who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 have antibodies that help protect nursing children against sickness. The immunity of children is underdeveloped during the nursing period. However, lactating mothers provide infants with “passive immunity.” The study suggested that “vaccines can help both mom and baby” thus is a “compelling reason for pregnant or lactating women to get vaccinated.”
