Israeli Study: Vaccinating Pregnant Women Could Protect Babies

Pregnant women vaccinated against Covid-19 could pass immunization to their babies, according to a new Israeli study.

Pregnant women vaccinated against Covid-19 could pass immunization to their babies, according to a new Israeli study.

According to a research conducted in February, antibodies were detected in 20 women who received two doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine during their third trimester of pregnancy and in their newborns, by placental transfer.

“Our results underscore that immunization of pregnant women can provide maternal and neonatal protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection”, the study said.

Experts said that more research is needed to assess the effect of vaccination at different stages of pregnancy, as well as the safety and effectiveness of different vaccines currently available.

One of the researchers, Dana Wolf, as quoted by the Jerusalem Post, said the group will now begin to examine how long the antibodies triggered by vaccinations will last in inside babies’ bodies.
