President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, responded to popstar Nicki Minaj's concern that COVID-19 vaccines can cause swollen testicles or reproductive issues.

CNN's Jake Tapper asked Fauci Wednesday about Minaj's widely shared social media message claiming that a friend of her cousin who received the COVID-19 vaccine and claimed impotence and swollen testicles afterward.

Tapper asked:  "Dr. Fauci, is there any evidence that the Pfizer, the Moderna, or the J&J vaccines cause any reproductive issues in men or women?"

Fauci replied; "The answer to that, Jake, is a resounding no. There's no evidence that it happens," Fauci replied.

Fauci then stated that "there is a lot of misinformation ... on social media" and the way to counter that is to provide "correct information." Fauci concluded that science is not about one-off anecdotes.

Minaj's original tweet read, "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."
