COVID-19 Vaccine Will Not Affect Your Fertility, Says Top Doc

Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, says that there is "no evidence" that COVID-19 vaccines pose a risk to fertility during a press conference on Tuesday.

"I know that the relationship between COVID-19 vaccines and fertility is a worry and has been tracking on social media for some time," said Moore.

"This is something we've been monitoring and we've consulted The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada. To date, we have found no evidence that points to increased risk for either male or female fertility following vaccination."

Moore says they have particularly been paying attention to Ontario data "from The Better Outcome Registry, a network called (BORN) which shows that almost 40,000 women in Ontario have been vaccinated during pregnancy."

"There's been no evidence of increased risk for the health of the mother or infant from vaccination," says Moore. "These findings are consistent with evidence from other jurisdictions that show vaccination in pregnancy is safe and effective."

Moore encouraged people planning on getting pregnant or who are already pregnant to get vaccinated.
