In brief: Predisposition only

Semantics: vertigo is a symptom. There are genetic predisposition for vertigo but no "genetic vertigo".
It is like saying you cannot be born with "genetic pain". Diseases such as meniere's disease seems to run in families. There are familial vertigo syndromes, genetic deafness and neurological syndromes that have genetic underpinnings. Neurofibromatosis 2 can cause vertigo via brain tumors.
