Updated: few hours ago

Los Angeles, Jul 20 (PTI) Researchers have found no evidence for the presence of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines in human breast milk in a small study, suggesting that the mRNA preventives are safe during lactation.

The study, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, offers the first direct data of vaccine safety during breastfeeding and could allay concerns among those who have declined vaccination or discontinued breastfeeding due to concern that vaccination might alter human milk.
