Hi, Is there any recent data available on novavax safety when breastfeeding? Is there any theoretical concern that the Matrix M or nanoparticles are passed into breastmilk? Thanks

Lactmed is my go-to for this type of information - unfortunately nothing specific to Novavax at the moment there, but I suspect it will be updated when that information is avaialble:

I can't access the full-text, but would this review article help?
