“Let us put a stop to these false hoods,”
Social media is awash sometimes with lots of rumors and misinformation. False claims that the recently introduced COVID-19 vaccines impair fertility have been spreading on social media since December but The Director of the WHO of immunization said: ‘The vaccines we give cannot cause infertility . . . and there’s no truth to the rumor.’
It is very important for public health authorities to communicate what is known about vaccines and what its safety profile is.
