Vitamin D & COVID-19 Research


Now more than ever, it’s important to take care of our health.

Help us investigate the potential for vitamin D to reduce the burden of COVID-19.

Why Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is an important immune support, but many people in the US have deficient levels of the vitamin. Preliminary evidence suggests that maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D may reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection, or reduce the severity of symptoms if the disease is contracted. The University of Chicago is interested in evaluating whether taking vitamin D supplements prevents COVID-19 infections and reduces the severity of cases that do happen. We want first responders and members of our local Chicago communities to reap the first benefits.
