Can breastfeeding women get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. Breastfeeding women can get any COVID-19 vaccine. Despite limited data on this, the World Health Organization states that if a breastfeeding woman is part of a group recommended for vaccination (for example, healthcare workers), vaccination can be offered. It is not recommended to discontinue breastfeeding before or after vaccination.
