He addressed misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine and fertility that is causing unfounded fear among women who are rejecting vaccination
In this interview with CBS, The Fertility Institute’s Dr. Jay Huber busts the myths about the COVID-19 vaccine negatively affecting a woman’s subsequent fertility.
When asked what the biggest misconception is, Dr Huber said,”This concept that the vaccination will actually train the human immune system to create an antibody that would cross-react with the vital placenta protein, which would ultimately cause infertility.”
He said the unfounded fear is that an antibody would not only attack the virus but the placenta as well.
“I don’t think reproductive women should be concerned about their future fertility if they get this COVID-19 vaccine. The data we have thus far is that the vaccine is very safe.” – Dr. Jay Huber
