We evaluated the neutralization efficiency against SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant in maternal and cord blood sera after antenatal BNT162b2 vaccination. Neutralizing antibodies against Omicron were lacking at the time of delivery after 2-dose vaccination. A third booster dose was essential in building neutralizing antibody capacity against Omicron among mothers and neonates.
