You may have heard the warning from a friend or a relative: “Don’t give your daughter the COVID-19 vaccine if you want grandchildren.” Concerns about whether these vaccines will cause long-term fertility-related issues have rekindled as more children aged 12 and over are vaccinated in Canada and elsewhere, but experts say studies, along with time-tested scientific research around vaccines, show these claims are baseless. In Canada, the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was authorized in May for 12 to 15 year olds and Health Canada is currently reviewing Moderna’s application for those aged 12 to 17. Already, close to three million U.S. children between 12 and 17 have been vaccinated and clinical studies show the vaccines are safe and effective for that age group, says KidsHealthFirst.ca, an information portal for parents, caregivers, youth and health providers created by the Children’s COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Table.
