Does the COVID-19 vaccine cause infertility?
November 29, 2021
The question about infertility has been raised, in conjunction with the COVID-19 vaccinations that are now available to children aged 5 and older. Schoolhouse Pediatrics has found a few articles related to this subject that we wanted to share with our parents (see below) to hopefully put any concerns to rest:
- A Pediatric Gynecologist Shares The Facts About The Covid-19 Vaccine and Fertility
- Dr. Paul Offit with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia explains why infertility is not a concern following COVID-19 or receipt of the COVID-19 vaccine.
- A CHOC (Children’s Health Orange County, CA) pediatric infectious disease specialist helps settle the misconception that the COVID-19 vaccine affects fertility.
We hope this reassures everyone that may have had some questions. ALL of the providers at Schoolhouse Pediatrics are wholeheartedly recommending the vaccine to all eligible patients.
