At this rate, only time will tell how a maternal SARS-CoV-2 vaccination will affect a newborn. Here’s what we do know at The Wellness Way:
If you bypass an infant’s innate immune system, they develop a hyper-humoral immune response from an influx of antibodies. This can lead to bodily reactions such as: allergies, asthma, inflammation, etc., which would affect the child through the duration of their life.
Learn more about the link between allergies and vaccinations, here.
Our innate immune system is not able to differentiate between different types of pathogens, and it is also our body’s first line of defense against invasive pathogens. This means that, although the newborn baby will have the COVID antibodies, they will not be used because the body did not develop them through the adaptive immune system.
The researchers’ closing statement says, “We urge other investigators to create pregnancy and breastfeeding registries as well as conduct efficacy and safety studies of the COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant and breastfeeding women and their offspring.” (5)
