‘Urban Legend’: COVID Vaccines Don’t Affect Puberty, Fertility, Experts Say

The coronavirus vaccines won’t interfere with puberty or the future fertility of children who receive them, health experts say.

The vaccines introduced a new mRNA platform to immunization, which scientists say cannot interfere on the cellular level with a person’s genetic blueprint — meaning, like all other childhood vaccines, the coronavirus brand won’t hamper fertility in young people, ABC News reported.

“These particles cannot cause any long-term issues, such as autoimmune diseases or impacts on fertility or pregnancy,” said Dr. Stacy De-Lin, a gynecologist and family planning specialist, ABC reported. “There is no link between the COVID-19 vaccines and fertility—it’s an urban legend.”

Dr. Peter Hotez, a professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine, agreed with De-Lin, saying there is no biological reason mRNA could get into your DNA and interfere with adolescent development.

“There’s no plausible mechanism by which that could occur,” Hotez said, ABC reported.
