Twitter suspended the account of a doctor who shared a peer-reviewed study that suggested Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine had a detrimental effect on sperm counts.

The study, recently published in the scientific journal Andrology, analyzed semen donor samples and found that men who received the two-dose regimen of the vaccine had temporarily impaired semen concentration and reduced motile sperm counts.

On June 19, Dr. Andrew Bostom tweeted a PDF of the study. He commented that the researchers did not examine the semen of men who had received two doses plus a booster, positing the question, “Does boostering yield another decline?”

Twitter ended up suspending his account after the post.

In an interview with The Epoch Times, Bostom stated:

“I just pointed out that if this happens with the first series of vaccinations, maybe if they take these guys and have data on people that were semen donors and they had boosted them, when they followed them after the booster … would it (sperm count) be depressed more? Would it be depressed less? Would the effect last longer?” he asked.

“We just don’t have any data on that,” Bostom added. “So that was the only other thing I put into my tweet — that we just don’t know what the effect of boosters is going to be. I don’t know why any of that was such a big deal.”

Bostom learned from Twitter that his post allegedly violated the tech company’s policy against “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

“It seems to fit into the whole pattern of silencing open discussion,” said Bostom.

As reported in The Dallas Express, the study conducted by researchers concluded that the Pfizer vaccine’s effects on semen and sperm seem to resolve themselves after a few months and that the “long-term prognosis remains good.
