Is the AstraZeneca vaccine safe for breastfeeding women?

Dr Jane Leonard, a trained GP who has worked in London through the pandemic, said the vaccine is safe for both pregnant and breastfeeding women.

She told Express.co.uk: “According to a recent study by the The American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, COVID-19 vaccines were found to be safe and effective for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as potentially providing protection for their babies.

“The concerns related to the vaccine is pregnancy is based around the fact that pregnancy itself is a risk factor for developing a blood clot.”
