It is unclear whether Lowry is vaccinated against COVID-19. But in April 2020, when researchers were still looking for a safe and effective vaccine, a fan asked her if she would get herself and her children vaccinated as soon as one became available.
"No way," replied Lowry, who had spoken out against vaccinations in the past.

Lowry had come under fire last year after revealing she hadn't vaccinated Lux.
During an episode of her Coffee Convos podcast, the reality star said that Isaac was fully vaccinated but Lincoln was only partially vaccinated to USA Today.

I know what's best for my children and other parents know what's best for theirs. "
