COVID-19 vaccines do not impact fertility or harm a woman’s unborn baby, doctors have said.
The reassurance comes as anti-vaxx myths circulate on social media, breeding concern among women of childbearing age when the vaccine and data are so new.
One such false claim doing the rounds on Facebook is that a protein in the coronavirus shot attacks the placenta and can trigger a miscarriage.
This and other myths are fuelling vaccine hesitancy across the US, with women and couples delaying getting their jabs. The existing data has not reassured all American mothers, pregnant women, and others who are trying for a baby now or wish to have children in the future.
One mother-of-two, who asked not to be named, told The Sun: “How can you promise a safe drug [or] vaccine within a year of it coming out?
“I just have fears in general. Especially since I have had two pregnancies and one miscarriage. I’m all for shots, it just hasn’t been tested long enough.”
Meanwhile, a 31-year-old who fell ill with Covid-19 last December and still has “a high number of antibodies” according to her doctor, said she’s concerned the vaccine might impact her chances of conceiving.
“I’ve never tried to get pregnant before and according to my doctor I’m perfectly fine to start trying, but if for some reason I can’t get pregnant I know my first instinct would be to blame myself for getting the vaccine, and I don’t want to do that.
