STEM: How the Pfizer and Moderna COVID 19 Vaccines Work (mRNA)

Science is real and the latest result of some really cool science, and lots of really smart STEM / STEAM people, is the vaccine for the coronavirus. That vaccine has just shipped and is now being injected in front line workers and nursing home residents so they will be protected against the COVID-19 coronavirus.

In a few months, the world may start being normal again as more vaccine doses become available, and more people like us are inoculated.

Remarkably, it took less than a year to develop a vaccine against this virus: You ask……how can that happen that fast, when it normally takes years (at least in the old days) to develop a vaccine?

The answer: Science……Technology…..Education / Engineering….Math……Research.

Watch these cool videos (then visit their links on YouTube) to learn more about the technology behind the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines made using mRNA (messenger ribonucleuc acid).

Stay Safe!

Wear a mask, stay away from people, stay home except for essentials.

Get the vaccine when you can…..
