The chief physician of the 15th “Filatov” Hospital of the Moscow Health Department, Valery Vikorko, said that he does not recommend that breastfeeding women receive a vaccine against “Covid-19”,

But during pregnancy they can be vaccinated.

This came in his words in an interview with him on October 21, on the Russian “Echoes of Moscow” radio, where he answered a question directed to him about whether breastfeeding is a barrier to receiving a vaccine against the Corona virus.

He explained, “I can’t say anything about pregnancy, but there are a lot of studies, including Russian scientific research, that the vaccination can be used during pregnancy, and with regard to the lactation period, I do not recommend breastfeeding women to receive a vaccine.”

At the same time, he pointed out that pregnant women infected with the very dangerous Corona virus have begun to enter the maternity hospital, and they are in fact responsible not only for themselves, but also for the child, and often children born to mothers infected with the Corona virus have a negative test for “BC.” ER” (a test for the presence of the Corona virus), but if the test is positive, this indicates that the child has “Covid-19”, then he is transferred to the Children’s Hospital.
