Abstract
Infant response against infections depends largely on active and passive transfer of immunity through breast milk. There is plenty of data showing Infant response against infections depends largely on active and passive transfer of immunity through breast milk. There is plenty of data showing transplacental transfer of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies to fetus and presence of neutralizing Ig-A and Ig-G anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in breast milk of mother post Covid vaccination. There is paucity of research regarding impact of Covid-19 vaccination of lactating mothers on immune response in infant blood.
