No impact so far: So far, no effects on fertility have been found. “The spike protein on the Covid-19 virus and a protein that makes up the placenta have only a small amount in common, almost certainly not enough for the immune system to attack the placenta.” https://fullfact.org/health/vaccine-covid-fertility/

COVID 19 vaccine: I am not aware of COVID 19 vaccinations causing infertility. You can learn more about this at: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2034577
