COVID Vaccines and Women’s Health Myths

July 26, 2021

Vaccines for COVID-19 became available in late 2020, and were immediately followed by a rash of myths and misinformation online. Many of the most pervasive myths – that the vaccine causes infertility, that it’s unsafe for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, that it can cause miscarriage – are specifically focused on women’s health and reproductive health.

Dr. Michael Beninati joins this episode of the Women’s Healthcast to put a stop to some of the most dangerous misinformation, and talk about the research that shows why these myths just aren’t true.

Some of the resources Dr. Beninati mentions for up-to-date and accurate COVID-19 and vaccine information: 

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists

Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine

American Society for Reproductive Medicine

U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
