I love my father, but he is a conspiracy theorist and has gone down the rabbit hole. He's convinced that the vaccine will have effect on women's fertility. I think maybe he got to me a bit. I am vaccinated and will be taking my booster soon. However, I am anxious of getting my daughter vaccinated. She's 11, and will be 12 in Spring. What she wants more than anything in life is to be a mother. If something I did messed that up for her one day, I could never forgive myself. 

Please help... if you are pregnant after being fully vaccinated, or know people who are, please let me know. I think I'll feel better about her getting vaccinated once she's 12. Thanks!

Talk to your doctor.

Even if your father was not delusional, he would not be the person to take medical advice from.

Neither are strangers on the internet.  Science is still science, doctors are still doctors.

This is exactly why your decisions should be based on expert advice.  

And- beware.  Posting here makes you subject to trolling and disinformation.  Take what you get here with a shaker of salt.

The research posted above is a great source, as is your PCP. If it helps I am a traveler and have made many friends who got pregnant after their covid vaccines. 1 was an "oops" after her 1st shot and she got fully vaxxed and she and baby were healthy through the pregnancy. Another girl I work with currently recieved both vaccines while she and her husband were trying and got pregnant after her second vaccine.

There is no evidence available that suggests that any of the Covid vaccines used in the US can cause infertility and no plausible mechanism of action how they theoretically could. It is vaccine DISINFORMATION that has been widely disseminated.

Please don’t let your misinformed father get to you. Talk to your and your daughter’s medical provider.

What you’re asking for is anecdotal data. In the past year we’ve had dozens of posters spreading disinformation and lies about Covid-19 and Covid vaccines on this forum, and some of them might take this opportunity to try to scare you with stories about their friend who’s had three miscarriages in the past eight months, or hasn’t gotten pregnant despite quitting their fulltime job and made having sex 24/7 their new job… Or the baby born with 15 toes and no nose. Be sceptical about what you read on the internet, especially when it’s unverified information from anonymous sources. 

I’m anonymous too but if it helps, one of my sisters, a friend and three coworkers have all gotten pregnant after being fully vaccinated. 

But please talk to your medical provider.

Best wishes!

Just Google Maddie De Garay. She is 12 and she volunteered for the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine trial.

Why? Is this fear mongering or misinformation or what?

She said her daughter is soon to be 12. I just gave my two cents. Is that considered misinformation right away?

You didn't give your two cents.  You made a vague reference to a child made famous by a Republican Wisconsin politician. The Senator was highlighting people that he believes are harmed by vaccination when public health is trying to get as many Americans vaccinated as possible. That behavior on his part encourages hesitancy.  

What is your opinion? (I could probably make an accurate guess but it's more polite to ask first)

My two cents is the vaccine is beneficial for those who are vulnerable. The risks don't outweigh the benefits for the young and healthy.

Your last two sentences seem to say that everyone, young, old or vulnerable, should vaccinate if eligible because the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks. Did I understand correctly?

Finally.  Something accurately valued.
