Healthcare workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Yolanda Tinajero, MD, OB/GYN affirms that the research shows the COVID-19 vaccines do not affect fertility and, in fact, help protect people who want to get pregnant in the future.
So, some patients have concerns about receiving a vaccine that very recently came onto the news and also the potential effects of fertility, including in patients who are desiring to become pregnant in the future.
What I share with my patients is that while this vaccine is particularly new, all of the work that has been done to create a vaccine such as this one has actually been studied for many, many years. And so, while the vaccine is new, a lot of the work behind it has actually been studied for quite some time. Additionally, what I tell them with regards to concerns about infertility is that the data shows that it does not affect fertility for both women and men. And so, it’s very important that anyone who is considering becoming pregnant in the future to receive the COVID vaccine.
