Do the COVID vaccines affect fertility?

Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Yvonne Maldonado, MD explains that the COVID vaccines do not affect fertility and are safe for pregnant women too.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology itself in conjunction with the American Academy of Pediatrics has said that there is no evidence that these vaccines cause infertility, that they cause stillbirths or miscarriages. That data has been vetted very carefully and has been published. The misinformation that comes out is based on inaccurate predictions from different groups around the world. And this is very common to hear from anti-vaxxer anti-vaccine groups.
