COVID-19 Vaccine Does Not Alter DNA —FG

The Federal Government, through the National Orientation Agency, NOA, has said the COVID-19 vaccine does not alter DNA.

 

The Agency stated this ahead of the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines in Nigeria which will help in the fight against the virus which has killed over 1,300 Nigerians.

 

It said the vaccine will be subjected to laboratory examinations to ensure it is safe before being administered to humans.

 

“COVID-19 vaccine does not alter your DNA. It triggers an immune response that will protect your body against the virus if encountered,” the agency said on its official Twitter handle.

 

“Once you and your community members are protected, the chances of the spread of the disease are reduced.”

 

In other posts, the Agency said, “There is no scientific evidence that COVID-19 vaccine will change or affect human genetic information (DNA).

 

“The vaccine will be subjected to laboratory examinations to ensure it is safe before being administered on humans.

 

“The vaccine cannot infect you with COVID-19. It is meant to protect you from COVID-19. Once your vaccination doses are completed, you become protected.”
