New Website Coming Soon
We are currently in the process of upgrading our website. The new site will be launched in the coming weeks.
We would be happy to receive suggestions from the Irish human genetics community on what information they would like to see available on our website. Please email the ISHG Secretary with any suggestions.
There is significant public interest in the new mRNA based vaccines for COVID-19 as they depend upon new technology. Unfortunately there is much misinformation circulating online regarding the mechanism of these vaccines. Therefore the council of the ISHG has decided to issue a statement here to the effect that mRNA vaccines do not alter your DNA in any way. This also means that they cannot alter the DNA of your children, whether conceived before or after the vaccination. See the ESHG statement here for more information.
