Is the COVID-19 vaccine safe to get while breastfeeding?

Dr. Kathleen Jaeger, Ob/Gyn at Missouri Baptist, a sister hospital of St. Louis Children’s Hospital, explains that it is safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine while breastfeeding.

Vaccines and boosters for all eligible ages are available through several BJC HealthCare locations, other members of the Pandemic Task Force, or retail pharmacies and vaccine sites across the region. Some pediatrician or primary care offices may also offer the COVID-19 vaccine to their patients, so check with your doctor as well!
