I don’t know anyone who’s had COVID-19, so I don’t need the vaccine.
The number of people worldwide who have died with COVID-19 has passed one million with many regions still reporting surging numbers of new infections.
In Wales, there have been many deaths and thousands more people hospitalised, or with ongoing health complications.
People continue to get infected, and once the virus starts to spread, it can do so rapidly. Even if you, your family or friends haven’t experienced it first-hand, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a threat. Being vaccinated will help to protect you and reduce the spread of this deadly virus.

document in response to questions that patients have been asking about Covid-19 vaccines and
fertility. The availability of safe and effective vaccines against Covid-19 offers a way for many of our
patients to protect themselves against this disease, and access fertility treatment safely.
These FAQs were created on 8th February 2021 and are correct at the time of publication. Please be

person to always discuss their individual situation with their health care provider.
