Babies get COVID-19 protection from moms who get vaccinated while pregnant

The CDC says that women who get vaccinated against COVID-19 while pregnant give their babies protection.

Has this been studied?

Babies less than six moths old are 61% less likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 if their mother got vaccinated while pregnant.

The CDC gathered this information based on mothers who received two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

The researchers studied newborns at 20 pediatric hospitals in 17 different states.

84% of babies that were hospitalized with COVID-19 were born to unvaccinated mothers. The study included 43 infants that were admitted to the ICU for COVID. 88% of them had moms who were not vaccinated before giving birth.

This information is important because vaccines for children this young “are still a ways off.”

The antibodies from the vaccine have been found in blood from the umbilical cord and in the placenta. This confirms the transfer of antibodies against COVID-19 from mother to baby.

Despite this information, CDC guidelines for pregnant people getting vaccinated have not changed.
