Covid vaccines don’t cause infertility: Government

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare today clarified that none of the Covid vaccines administered in India has any side effects negatively impacting the fertility of either men or women. 

The clarification came out amid some unfounded rumours that the vaccines are adversely affecting fertility in some men and women. The official statement pointed to an answer posted on the official website of the Health Ministry portal.

“All vaccines are first tested on animals and later in humans to assess if they have any such side effects. Vaccines are authorized for use only after their safety and efficacy are determined,” the statement added.

The government said that Covid vaccines are recommended for lactating women as well.
