After concerns were raised regarding the Covid-19 vaccines’ possible detrimental impact on male fertility, according to a recently released longitudinal medical study, in a group of 37 sperm donors, across 220 samples collected, Pfizer’s mRNA Covid-19 vaccines caused men to experience a drop in fertility of more than 20%. According to the study, semen volume and motility remained stable.
In the latest study, entitled “Covid-19 vaccination BNT162b2 temporarily impairs semen concentration and total motile count among semen donors” released on 17th June 2022, the semen donors were studied for five months after receiving the vaccine according to CDC recommendations. Each participant provided multiple samples, spread out throughout the study’s duration.’
The scope of the study did not include the effects of additional “booster” injections.
The conclusion of this study was: “Systemic immune response after BNT162b2 vaccine is a reasonable cause for transient semen concentration and TMC decline. Long-term prognosis remains good.”
Experts have been attempting to disprove the possibility that the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccination may affect both male and female fertility for more than two years.
Experts described the allegations as a “scare campaign” intended to deter people from receiving vaccinations in a report by NPR in 2021. According to the study, despite decades of research, such erroneous statements “particularly intended to weaken trust in Pfizer.” Even though the mainstream media made a false claim, there haven’t been decades of research on mRNA COVID vaccinations.
According to a report by USA Today, a research-backed by the CDC and released in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2021, showed no direct effect of the vaccine on fertility. However, because the study only followed the participants for 70 days, nearly immediately following vaccination, it could not draw any firm conclusions about the vaccine’s long-term effects.
At this stage, It would be apt to have a study about whether the Covid-19 vaccines have long-term effects on the fertility of both men and women and if men and women are becoming permanently infertile due to the Covid-19 vaccines.
