Background and Objective: Breast milk has significant benefits for both mothers and babies. Counseling is a beneficial method for the continuity of exclusive breastfeeding. Remote counseling methods are currently being developed. This study was conducted to determine the effects of telephone counseling on the continuity and duration of exclusive breastfeeding among mothers who have had a cesarean section.
Methods: In this clinical trial, 154 mothers who have had cesarean section delivery were randomly divided into an experimental and a control group. The intervention group received seven sessions of telephone counseling for 1-3 months postpartum in addition to the routine breastfeeding training program. The control group only received the routine breastfeeding training program.
Results: After 4 months postpartum, the average duration of exclusive breastfeeding in the intervention group (15.51±0.88 weeks) was longer than that in the control group (10.74±5.33 weeks) (P<0.05). At 3 months postpartum, exclusive breastfeeding in the intervention group was 10.45 times longer than in the control group (OR=10.455, CI=2.547-42.912, P<0.001).
Conclusion: Telephone counseling is effective in increasing the continuity and duration of exclusive breastfeeding in mothers who undergo a cesarean section.

Background and Objective: COVID-19 is a rapidly spreading acute respiratory syndrome worldwide. COVID-19 vaccination has been widely used as a means to control the disease. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between demographic characteristics and COVID-19 vaccination in patients with COVID-19.
Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was conducted on 1124 patients with a definitive diagnosis of COVID-19 in Minoodasht, Iran, in August 2021. The instruments used in this study included a demographic data questionnaire and a checklist assessing patient characteristics.
Results: The majority of COVID-19 patients were men (51.8%), aged between 35 to 45 years (26%), and married (76.5%). COVID-19 vaccination was administered to 26.6% of the patients. Patients who received vaccination (27.1%) used masks less than unvaccinated patients (72.9%) (P<0.05). Of the patients with COVID-19, 8.2% were hospitalized. The mean duration of hospitalization for vaccinated patients (7.8±6.4 days) was lower than that for unvaccinated patients (8.3±5.9 days); however, this difference was not significant. Age, education, underlying disease, and mask usage were associated with COVID-19 vaccination (P<0.05). With an increase in underlying disease and age, vaccination rates increased, while vaccination rates decreased with the use of masks and lower education.
Conclusion: Attention to demographic factors and certain characteristics of individuals is necessary to improve COVID-19 vaccination rates. Previous COVID-19 vaccination does not decrease the number of hospitalization days in patients with COVID-19.
