- Does vitamin D have a role in the immune response to vaccines?
- Could vitamin D treat COVID-19?
During 2020, a number of studies have examined the possible association between vitamin D status and susceptibility to COVID-19 and its consequences. Two studies have reported inverse correlations between national estimates of vitamin D status and COVID-19 incidence and mortality in European countries (Laird et al 2020; Ilie et al 2020). Lower serum 25(OH)D concentrations have also been reported to be associated with susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 infection (D’Avolio et al, 2020) and increased COVID-19 severity (Panagiotou et al, 2020).
