Can I get vaccinated while breastfeeding?

Yes, you can. In fact, vaccination is expressly recommended for nursing mothers both for their own protection and for the protection of their child. Having been vaccinated for Corona, you need not forgo or interrupt breastfeeding. After vaccination, your breast milk will contain valuable antibodies which can protect your baby against Corona.

There has been no evidence to date that Corona shots administered during breastfeeding might involve any risk for mother or child. For nursing mothers, vaccinations with an mRNA vaccine are recommended.
