Busting Myths: Does Covid-19 vaccine cause infertility in men, women?
New Delhi, June 21: The Union health ministry on Monday reiterated there is no scientific evidence of COVID-19 vaccination causing infertility in men and women and asserted the jabs are safe and effective.
There have been media reports expressing concern regarding infertility due to COVID-19 vaccination among people of reproductive age, the ministry said in a statement.
Over the last few days, certain media reports have highlighted the prevalence of various superstitions and myths in a section of healthcare workers (HCWs) and frontline workers (FLWs) including the nurses, it said. Such misinformation and rumours were spread during the vaccination drives against polio and measles-rubella too, it added.
