One of the top misconceptions about the Covid-19 vaccines is that they will infect you with coronavirus. The truth is that while some vaccines for other diseases contain live viruses that have been weakened, NONE of the Covid-19 vaccines approved around the world use a live virus. Covid-19 vaccines do not contain live virus and cannot give you the disease.
The vaccines have also been falsely linked to infertility. There is no evidence, nor any plausible medical or biological reason, why the coronavirus vaccines would affect fertility in females or males.
You might have heard that the coronavirus vaccines can have adverse side effects. According to WHO, the vaccines can cause mild, short term side effects such as a low-grade fever or pain or redness at the injection site. The effects go away after few days.
Get all the facts right on the World Health Organization (WHO) websites and consult a certified doctor for more information.
The best way to protect yourself and others from the current fourth wave (Delta Variant) is to get vaccinated and adhere to the Covid-19 prevention guidelines.
