Vaccine Based Shidduchim

This is funny
vaccine based shidduchim
This ad is for a new shidduch service.
This new service is in light of the concerns based on studies, studies conducted in Israel and abroad, regarding the [CoronaVirus] vaccinations causing problems with fertility, along with the decision of Rav Malkiel Kotler, a new shidduch service that is fertility-concern-free has been started. This is only for people who have not been vaccinated at all.
I am not sure what they mean by not vaccinated at all - meaning, not even one dose of Corona vaccine or no vaccine at all as all vaccines cause fertility problems?
Regardless of this question, I find this somewhat humorous. 
The Haredi community loves to threaten that if this or that does not work according to the way they want, think the conversion law, weddings and divorces, etc, they will have too establish a "sefer yuchsin" - a lineage book to keep track of who is who so they will know who is really Jewish and who can marry with whom. That is a threat they pull out. Just a threat. As if it is a bad thing. Yet here they (some people) go doing just that - keeping track of who is who and who can marry whom. They are basing it on a vaccine rather than on conversion status...which makes it seem just silly.
That being said, I do wonder how they will know if someone coming to seek a shidduch through this service is vaccinated or not. Will they require negative serological tests? What about people who had Corona already? Will it just be on the honor system?
Will anyone with fertility problems after marrying through this service be thought of as a liar? 
Somehow I do not think this they have found the solution to the shidduch crisis... but if it helps a few people get married, somehow by offering a smaller pool of potential mates, good for them.
