Fact-checked: No evidence you shouldn’t breastfeed after Covid-19 vaccination _

Instagram posts with screenshots of a tweet from a woman who got the Covid-19 vaccine while pregnant, and then a later tweet in which she says her son has died have been circulating suggesting a correlation between the two events and implying that the Covid-19 vaccinations are not safe to have either during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

However, medical bodies recommend that it’s safe both to have the vaccine during pregnancy and breastfeed after having the vaccine. .
