Dr. Jessica Madden, Neonatologist & Medical Director of Aeroflow Breastpumps, Joins the Conversation Regarding the Safety of the Coronavirus Vaccine While Trying to Conceive
“We do know that there are not any associated risks with getting other vaccines while trying to conceive,” says Dr, Madden. It’s a myth that vaccines—and specifically the coronavirus vaccines—cause infertility. Dr. Madden points to the Texas Tech’s Infant Risk Center’s explanation of how the COVID vaccine works, which helps to explain that the mRNA vaccine does not actually contain any live virus like some other vaccines do. That’s why, she says, “it’s biologically and physiologically implausible that it could affect fertility.”
