Fact Check By: Craig Jones, Newswise

Truthfulness: False

Claim:

“Even among our own population, we have at least three women with menstrual cycles impacted after having spent time with a vaccinated person..."

Claim Publisher and Date: Leila Centner, co-founder of The Centner Academy on 2021-04-26

A private school in Miami sent its faculty and staff a letter last week warning that if they chose to get vaccinated against COVID-19, they would have to stay away from students. School co-founder, Leila Centner, who has frequently shared anti-vaccine posts on Facebook, claimed in the letter that “reports have surfaced recently of non-vaccinated people being negatively impacted by interacting with people who have been vaccinated.”* There is no evidence any vaccinated people may be transmitting something from their bodies to non-vaccinated people. Mrs Centner also claimed falsely that three women in the school's community had their menstrual cycles "impacted after having spent time with a vaccinated person". There is no scientific evidence that this could happen.

"There is no sort of mechanism that would even exist that would suggest in any way (a vaccine) could be transferred... or lead to a sequence of events that would alter pregnancy or a menstrual cycle," said Carolyn Coyne, a microbiologist and professor of molecular genetics and biology at Duke University.*

Claims of the COVID-19 vaccine causing miscarriage or infertility in women have also been debunked. See: https://www.newswise.com/factcheck/there-is-no-credible-evidence-that-shows-a-link-between-the-pfizer-covid-19-vaccine-and-female-infertility/?article_id=746166

Florida Atlantic University’s Joanna Drowos, D.O., M.P.H., M.B.A. on the safety of the vaccines...

The vaccines met rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization. More than 126 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the U.S. from Dec. 14, 2020 through March 22. These vaccines will undergo the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. This monitoring includes using both established and new safety monitoring systems to make sure that COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective in the long term.

Tecnología de inteligencia artificial y ECG puede rápidamente descartar infección por COVID-19
Mayo Clinic

La inteligencia artificial puede ofrecer un manera de determinar con exactitud que una persona no está infectada con la COVID-19. Un estudio internacional y retrospectivo descubrió que la infección por SARS-CoV-2, el virus que causa la COVID-19, provoca sutiles cambios eléctricos en el corazón.
