I’ve recently seen several questions about MTHFR and the COVID vaccines. A lot of people wonder if carrying the MTHFR mutation is a reason not to get vaccinated.
Let me give you the quick answer: There is no research showing that the MTHFR genetic variant is a reason not to get vaccinated.
In fact, going back through a couple of decades of research on MTHFR and vaccines leads to only one study showing a negative link. This study was on a vaccine for smallpox — one that is not normally given anymore. It really doesn’t have any application to current vaccines.[ref]
COVID-19 has been the subject of several genetic studies to determine which genes are related to severity. There is no connection between MTHFR genetic variants and COVID-19 severity. Read more about Genetics and COVID.
