The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) clarified in a post that there is no evidence that any of the vaccines can affect the fertility of women or men.
“There is no evidence, and no theoretical reason, that any of the vaccines can affect the fertility of women or men. People of reproductive age should get a COVID-19 vaccine when they receive their invitation, including people who are trying to have a baby or thinking about having a baby in the near future.”
Regarding the question that if it's possible that someone vaccinated against COVID-19 will still get infected, the MoPH replied that:
“No vaccine is 100 percent effective. Extensive clinical trials on the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines show both vaccines are around 95 percent effective at preventing a symptomatic COVID-19 infection after two doses. This is a very high and encouraging efficacy level but there may still be a very small number of people who receive the vaccine and still become sick due to COVID-19.”
