I know you were worried sick about the Covid vaccines when you saw this tweet from Nicki Minaj:
My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & became impotent. His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding. So just pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied

Bummer about that guy’s wedding, but a lot of the comments are suggesting maybe he has an STD or something else. He should definitely have that checked out because (1) yikes and (2) it sounds like it hurts.
The major news outlets couldn’t leave this one on Twitter, so CNN addressed it with Dr. Fauci. Skip to 4:23 in the video:
Dr. Anthony Fauci says Covid-19 vaccine approval for children under the age of 12 is "going to be some time in the fall."
"There will be enough data to apply with an emergency use authorization, both by Pfizer, a little bit later by Moderna." pic.twitter.com/Wr1EqnDIUL

According to Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President, there is no evidence that the Covid vaccines would cause reproductive issues.
Now for the trolling Tweets on the matter…
your science teacher was handing back your tests face down but you wanna do your own research on the vaccine 🤨

My cousin's friend's sister's BD took the vaccine and 2 weeks later BOOM! Arrested for unpaid parking tickets. Just saying, do your own research. Stay safe and stay blessed.

The people saying "do your own research" are the same people who asked us to write their research papers for them in high school.
