Health reporter Kristi Krueger and special projects producer Kathleen Corso wrote in their December 20th article for Local 10 News:

The University of Miami is investigating the possible effects of the coronavirus vaccine on male fertility.

That spurred his team to question the virus’ effect on sperm and reproduction.

“We’re evaluating the sperm parameters and quality before the vaccine and after the vaccine. From the biology of the COVID vaccine we believe it shouldn’t affect fertility but we want to do the study to make sure that man who want to have kids in the future to assure them it’s safe to go ahead and get the vaccine,” Ramasamy said.

Study participants must have a fertility evaluation before receiving the vaccine.
