Sheba Study Indicates: COVID-19 Vaccines Have No Adverse Effects on Fertility

Results suggest both women's and men’s fertility are not negatively affected by the COVID-19 vaccination, as opposed to COVID-19 infection, which was found to be harmful according to several studies.

Thirty-six couples going through IVF cycles participated in a new Sheba study aimed at evaluating the impact of COVID-19 vaccines on the procedure. Headed by Prof. Raul Orvieto, Director of Sheba’s Infertility & IVF Unit, the study found no negative effects in terms of the number of eggs, as well as the quality of both sperm and fetuses. Furthermore, 30% of the couples managed to conceive. 

As other fertility studies performed recently at Sheba and elsewhere have indicated that COVID-19 infection does have a negative impact on fertility, lowering embryo quality, IVF patients are strongly advised to get vaccinated.  According to Prof. Orvieto, “This study demonstrates that COVID-19 vaccination does not harm the fertility of both women and men, underlining the importance of immunization.”
