Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! And kudos for getting fully immunized against COVID-19 during your pregnancy for your newborn’s safety. This protects you—and also passes along protective antibodies that may reduce your baby’s risk of COVID-19 infection. In other words, you likely gave your little one some immunity against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from the moment they were born!
Still, you should strongly consider limiting your newborn’s exposure to others. People who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19 spread the virus, especially the more contagious Delta variant. Also keep in mind that people aren’t fully vaccinated against COVID-19 until two weeks after the last shot.
