A medical journal is reporting an experiment where it determined a woman’s fertility could be reduced by 90% from suffering from Zika. The study was published Thursday in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and the Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Lisa Motter joined the FOX Business Network to talk about the growing concerns about a possible link between the virus and early development of a child’s brain.

Motter explained, while using the Covid-19 vaccine known as the “safe Zika vaccine,” which will only be available for pregnant women and it should be used after being given to their infants, doctors cannot guarantee that the vaccines are safe. As Motter points out, it can be difficult to get the right dosage of the current vaccine for pregnant women because it doesn’t work and prevents them from catching Zika. That’s why it may be beneficial for people to avoid using the vaccine and put their child at risk of developing zika.
