The government guidelines and the medical organizations suggest that breastfeeding and pregnant women should not take the vaccine. As of now, there isn’t enough evidence and studies carried out on the effects of the vaccine on lactating and pregnant women.

I have also been advised by the doctors to not take the vaccine for now and I would urge expecting mothers to refrain as well till we don’t have further announcements from the government in this regard.”
