How do the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna mRNA vaccines work? Dr. Rob Swanda explains it all
Dr. Rob Swanda gives a brief overview of how the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna mRNA vaccines work.
He says in his YouTube Channel
There is a lot more information I wanted to cover, such as the immunity length over time, side effects, and non-mRNA vaccine technologies. We could discuss this for hours. But, the focus here is on the technology itself.
I do use some technical terms, please find them defined below. Im happy to hear questions and comments. Thank you for taking a little time to learn about RNA! 🧬
(technical terms: 3’UTR/5’UTR = untranslated regions of the mRNA that do not code for the protein but aid in stability. Lipid = fat molecule. Ribosome = cell machinery that makes proteins from mRNA. Macrophage = a white blood cell in our body that responds to infection. Antigen = foreign protein that antibodies detect.)
