Intend to have the SF jab next week at work (hospital setting).

I wondered if it will provide any immunological benefit to my bf DS?

Anyone know the answer?

Evidence is limited, especially in relation to this particular vaccine, but it's possible that antibodies you produce could be transmitted to him via your milk.

i asked this - the simple answer is that they dont seem to know but possibily; this ,not passing it on to my little one, and being able to nurse the family of the others get it, were my reasons for having it.
