WHAT IS AN MRNA VACCINE? MESSENGER RIBONUCLEIC ACID, OR MRNA FOR SHORT IS THE SET OF INSTRUCTIONS BY WHICH CELLS MAKE ALL PROTEINS AND SEND THEM TO VARIOUS PARTS OF THE BODY. USES A COPY OF A MOLECULE CALLED MESSENGER RNA TO PRODUCE AN IMMUNE RESPONSE. THE VACCINE TRANSFECTS MOLECULES OF SYNTHETIC RNA INTO IMMUNE CELLS, WHERE THE VACCINE FUNCTIONS AS MRNA, CAUSING THE CELLS TO BUILD FOREIGN PROTEIN THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE PRODUCED BY A PATHOGEN OR BY A CANCER CELL. THESE PROTEIN MOLECULES STIMULATE AN ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE WHICH TEACHES THE BODY TO IDENTIFY AND DESTROY THE CORRESPONDING PATHOGEN OR CANCER CELLS. THE MRNA IS DELIVERED BY A CO-FORMULATION OF THE RNA ENCAPSULATED IN LIPID NANOPARTICLES WHICH PROTECT THE RNA STRANDS AND HELP THEIR ABSORPTION INTO THE CELLS. IT 1S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT MRNA, YOUR GENETIC CODE WOULD NEVER GET USED BY YOUR BODY. PROTEINS WOULD NEVER GET MADE. AND YOUR BODY WOULDN’T – ACTUALLY COULDN’T – PERFORM ITS FUNCTIONS.

HOW DOES MODERNA & PFIZER AFFECT THE BODY?

THE MODERNA COVID-19 VACCINE USES MRNA TO PROVIDE A BLUEPRINT FOR YOUR CELLS TO BUILD YOUR BODY’S DEFENSE AGAINST SARS-COV-2, THE VIRUS THAT CAUSES COVID-19. IT DOES NOT CONTAIN SARS-COV-2, OR ANY VIRUS, JUST THE BLUEPRINT TO HELP FIGHT AGAINST IT.

THE PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE DELIVERS MRNA TO THE BODY’S CELLS BY LIPID NANOPARTICLES, INSTRUCTS THE CELLS TO GENERATE THE SPIKE PROTEIN FOUND ON THE SURFACE OF THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS THAT INITIATES INFECTION. INSTRUCTING CELLS TO GENERATE THE SPIKE PROTEIN SPURS AN IMMUNE RESPONSE, INCLUDING GENERATION OF ANTIBODIES SPECIFIC TO THE SARS-COV-2 SPIKE PROTEIN IT DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY VIRUS

WHO SHOULD NOT GET THE MODERNA/PFIZER COVID-19 VACCINE?

. HAD A SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION AFTER A PREVIOUS DOSE OF THIS VACCINE
. HAD A SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION TO ANY INGREDIENT OF THIS VACCINE

. MOST PEOPLE WITH CANCER DO MOUNT AN IMMUNE RESPONSE TO THE VACCINES, ALTHOUGH PEOPLE ON CERTAIN TREATMENTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE TARGETING BLOOD CELLS WHICH MAKE ANTIBODIES MAY NOT MOUNT AN EFFECTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE TO THEM.
