If any medical professional had this concern, it was without any foundation.
I believe that was the conclusion that was reached and too be fair it was very early on in the process. But I defer fully to the medical professionals on the Yard. My commentary was anecdotal.

EDIT:
Some quick research shows that apparently this was a wide spread concern in the medical community (consistent with my experience), the reason behind it, and confirms debunks the concern.

Why COVID Vaccines are Falsely Linked to Infertility
Across the country, significant numbers of health care workers have balked at getting the new vaccines.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said in a recent briefing that 60% of Ohio’s nursing home staffers had declined their shots. In Georgia, an infection prevention nurse who coordinates COVID vaccines for the 30,000 employees in her health system said that so far, fewer than 33% had gotten the shot. The rest had decided to “wait and see.”

What really cracks me up is the paranoia people have about the ingredients of vacinnes (not just the covid one), thinking a miniscule amount of some chemical in a vacinne is going to be toxic or cause some kind of chronic condition. Formaldehyde? Do you smoke or live in a house with plywood? Aluminum? Do you use underarm deodorant? Even mercury you are naturally exposed to more than what might be in a vacinne. People just don't realize the kind of exposure to chemicals they get every day. I'm not saying that the daily exposure is going to do any substantial harm, but vacinne ingredients should be the last of your concerns.

I know this isn't what the concern is regarding fertility, but it just another example of the stupidity. But regarding the fertility question, if the immune response were to attack the placenta because of the similar proteins as covid, then a natural covid infection would do the same thing, and we be screwed anyway.

This was the conclusion that the separate groups that I spoke with came to.

Question for people who had the second mRNA shot and who became ill. How long did that take to affect you? I get my shot around 9:20 tomorrow and have to drive somewhere (for a Covid test of all things) at 1:30. I'm hoping I'm not feverish and out of it.

You should be fine. Both of my Moderna shots were given before 4 PM and felt no effects until after I first went to bed.

FYI, now the rumors are out there that someone who is just vaccinated can shed their "proteins" on to other women and make them infertile. There are businesses and schools banning vaccinated people from going near women! Certainly feels like people have been watching a lot of Handmaid's Tale.

Must. Not. Make. Shedding. Proteins. Joke.

FWIW, I had my shot at 11:45. At around 7 PM I got cold and felt tired. I threw on a sweatshirt and crawled under a comforter and slept until 9 PM and then I felt fine. Mrs. 82, however, got 48 hours of flu like symptoms.

I was okay with Moderna's second shot until about 8-10 hours after. Then I started feeling really tired.

I started feeling minor effects about 3 hours after the shot...but it hit harder after about 8 hours

I had the shot at 3:30 PM and started feeling it at around 4:00 AM. Me and the couch were one until about 9:30 PM. Fine the next day.

From the people I know (Moderna) that hard side effects, most started to feel something 7-10 hours after .

Who's going to give their 12-15 year old's the Pfizer vaccine now - since its approved ? Considering doing so for mine in the next month or so - before school starts.

Lots of my older middle school students are getting it this weekend and/or next week.

my wife and i both got Moderna, shots 1 and 1:10 pm, and we both went to bed feeling fine, and woke up (seperate rooms so if one of us had issues we wouldn't both suffer) around 2am with the fever, chills and crap.

We've been back and forth, but finally decided that our kid gets her shot when she turns 12 in July.

If you are going to get the shot for school, why not now?

Live from second shot waiting area. Still a lot of people of short of full capacity. No lines really.
My arm is definitely more sore than from shot #1.

Well I went about 24 hours with just a sore arm after 2nd Moderna. Then fatigue hit this morning, then chills and my thinking is fuzzy. Now fever of 100 and I’m unusually in the high 97 range. Thought I had lucked out. I guess not.

That happened to me. I freaking went for a run the morning after. Then it hit me around 11 AM and relented the next morning.
