I have a son and daughter-in-law that fear their sixteen year old daughter getting the vaccine for fear she will become infertile. What is your feeling on this issue?

Hi @pcarl1938, according to the CDC and other health professionals, there is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems.

Unfortunately, there has been sophisticated disinformation campaign circulating on social media channels, claiming that antibodies to the spike protein of COVID-19 produced from these vaccines will bind to placental proteins and prevent pregnancy. COVID-19 vaccines have not been linked to infertility or miscarriage.

You can read more from Mayo Clinic experts in this article. See myth number 9.

I hope this puts your son and daughter-in-law's minds at ease.
