Does the vector vaccine affect our DNA?

The vector vaccines work by delivering small pieces of DNA with viral information to our cell nuclei. While extremely rare, these strands of DNA can randomly insert into our DNA. That said, our DNA changes continuously, and such natural changes are far more common than that caused by the integration of adenovirus DNA. Moreover, we are also frequently exposed to adenoviruses that cause the common cold.
