Myth: The COVID-19 vaccine can affect women’s fertility.

FACT: The COVID-19 vaccine will not affect fertility.

The COVID-19 vaccine, like other vaccines, works by training our bodies to develop copies of the spike protein found on the coronavirus’s surface. This “teaches” the body’s immune system to fight the virus that has that specific spike protein on it.

There is no evidence that the antibodies prevent pregnancy. Getting COVID-19, on the other hand, can have a potentially serious impact on pregnancy and the mother’s health.
