I don't think there can be data on this, given how short the trials were. On the other hand, I don't think that scientists fear birth defects from COVID-19 vaccines (These vaccines' intended mechanism does not involve modifying your DNA, mind you) The only known mechanism I could find where a vaccine would cause birth defects was when the virus itself was ...

They both encode the full spike. The two mRNA front-runners share many commonalities. Both take advantage of modified RNA chemistry to encode the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein with stabilizing mutations added to lock the shape-shifting surface protein into a form easily recognizable to the immune system. Both also use lipid nanoparticle (LNP) delivery systems. ...

The CDC published a study on this recently, but it's not doubling the same mask. Double mask refers to a three-ply medical procedure mask covered by a three-ply cloth cotton mask. A knotted and tucked medical procedure mask is created by bringing together the corners and ear loops on each side, knotting the ears loops together where they attach to the mask, ...

We do not know. Until there is a phase 3 clinical trial and ivermectin gets FDA approval, it is too early to draw definite conclusions. The NIH has gathered all studies performed and combined them into a table. All of them have methodical disadvantages and limitations such as no peer review, no randomisation or a small sample size (20 patients in each arm) ...
