Delta variant-dominated period, according to a study published online June 1 JAMA Internal Medicine,

Alain Karlsson, PhD, of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo, and colleagues investigated whether COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy is associated with a lower risk of COVD-19 in infants up to 4 months of age during delta- and omicron-dominant Duration. A total of 21,643 live infants were included in the register-based cohort study.

Researchers found that 45.0 percent of babies born alive were born to women who received a second or third dose of the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy.

Compared to infants of non-vaccinated mothers, infants of mothers who were vaccinated during pregnancy have a lower risk of testing positive, and the delta type-prime period is at lower risk than during the omicron period (incidence rate: 1.2 versus 3.0 per 10,000 follow-up days) [adjusted hazard ratio, 0.29] during the delta dominance period and 7.0 versus 10.9 per 10,000 follow-up days [adjusted hazard ratio, 0.67] during the Omicron dominance period).
