Do mRNA vaccines change your DNA?
No, the mRNA in the Pfizer (Comirnaty) and Moderna (Spikevax) vaccines don’t interact with your DNA at all. DNA is your genetic material and it’s stored in the nucleus of a cell. The mRNA in the vaccines never gets into the nucleus. The mRNA in the vaccine breaks down relatively quickly and doesn’t stay in your body.
