Medics say the spread of misinformation, rumours, and unscientific information has increased during the pandemic and people should be careful when reading such information that often goes viral online.
Dr.Maisaa Al Sulaiman, Specialist Family Medicine, Burjeel Specialty Hospital, Sharjah said, “Misinformation itself is a pandemic... The rumours linking vaccinations and women's menstrual cycles are one such example. However, according to scientists, so far, there is no data to suggest women's immunity reduces during their periods or that vaccines lead to changes in menstruation. Periods have no effect on vaccine efficacy.
