Familiarize Yourself With the First COVID-19 Vaccines
Questions about COVID-19 vaccines are firing fast and furious.
Be familiar with how the first vaccines work. The vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT162b2) and Moderna (mRNA-1273) are "mRNA" vaccines...using messenger ribonucleic acid (genetic material).
They give our cells a blueprint to make a piece of the SARS-CoV-2 "spike" protein. This triggers our bodies to produce antibodies that will protect us from infection if we're exposed to the real virus.
