The findings were made public on April 5.“You can get infected with this virus regardless of your blood type,” Dr. Gastaldo explained.To be sure, the answer to Donna’s question is false: your blood type has no bearing on your risk of COVID-19 infection.”“You should get vaccinated regardless of your blood type,” Dr. Gastaldo advised. “At some point, we’re all going to come into contact with this virus.”When different studies produce different results, it is up to the National Institutes of Health and the Infectious Diseases Society of America to provide guidance.
