Many rumors have circulated about Covid-19 vaccines. Some think they could cause death. Others believe they contain electronic tracking chips. Of course, all of these rumors are unfounded. Since the start of the pandemic, health officials have redoubled their efforts to stem the spread of this false information.
Despite this, the craziest rumors about Covid-19 vaccines continue to circulate on the web. According to one of them, these vaccines could make you infertile. Professor Lucy Chappell, from the NIHR Research Professor in Obstetrics at King's College London, reassured the public about this.
She explained to the Daily Mail microphone that Covid-19 vaccines do not affect fertility .
Women refuse to inject the vaccine
Professor Lucy Chappell spoke after a poll of 55,642 Britons found that more than a quarter of women between the ages of 18 and 34 do not intend to be vaccinated. Most of them fear that the vaccine will have an impact on their fertility or their pregnancy.
Also according to this survey, young women who do not vote would be more likely to refuse the vaccine against Covid-19. On the other hand, the researchers said that the younger a person, the more likely they were to oppose the vaccination. Professor Lucy Chapell understands their concerns. However, she believes it is essential to restore the truth.
