Infertile = not able to have a baby.
As far as I am aware, infertility is not a result of the plague, except perhaps in certain cases where a person was so ill that theuir reproductive organs were damaged.

Are you sure you didn't mean 'immune' = resistant to the disease.

The plague was carried by rats. The rate-fleas also therefore got the plague germs from the rats, which grew in their suckers. When a rat-flea bit a human, that human got the plague.
Where a place was very clean (usually rich-people's areas), or during winter when the fleas became less active, the plague stopped spreading. A cold winter wiped it out.

There was another form of the plague called pneumonic plague, which some gave you when they sneezed on you. But people started locking up people with the plague, and this stopped this spreading.
