COVID-19 Vaccine Doesn't Change DNA

COVID-19 vaccines do not interact with your DNA.


Did you know?

All the COVID-19 vaccines with Emergency Use Authorization deliver instructions (genetic material) to our cells to start building protection against the coronavirus.

However, the material never enters the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA is kept. This means vaccines cannot affect our DNA in any way. 

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is quick and easy. Learn how.
