That's real smart of you. Say spoiler alert, then put the spolier in the title for everyone to see....

 

Good job man.

The virus is spread through contact (blood most likely) of bodily fluids, if you have atleast passed junior high or some of highschool then no she shouldn't be able to have kids(atleast not normal ones) not to mention he husband/boyfriend or whoever her male buddy is should then technically become infected. This all assuming she can infect others.

What if she shares food or drink? Would that infect the people who shared the stuff?

She can infect others, as explained during Winter. As per Splatteregg's question, she infects David via biting him, a saliva transfer of the infection to David's blood. So if others can be infected via saliva, I'd assume yes, sharing food or drink with someone who is infected will infect you with the cordyceps.

And to answer OP's question, if Ellie ever has kids (which I doubt would happen due to her infection and the world of the Last of Us), they would not be immune. Her immunity (if you'd even call it immunity) is due to a mutation of the cordyceps that stemmed its growth inside her brain. Her immunity is in no way genetic.

Considering you find out about her immunity in practically the beginning of the game, don't see the problem.

Wait but didnt Ellies immunity come from a mutation in the cordyceps, and not genetic? So wouldnt her biting someone actually sort of make them immune? Or am I missing out on something?...

This is what I gathered, not sure I'm 100% right:
Ellie is infected with the cordyceps in her, but the actual fungal growth has mutated somehow due to unknown reasons, causing her immunity.

So unless every other person she infects gets their codyceps mutated too, they won't be immune.
