Get the Facts about the COVID-19 Vaccine
There are three vaccines available from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) technology. Unlike other vaccines, mRNA technology does not use any live virus particles. You will not be exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. Johnson & Johnson is a viral vector vaccine. A viral vector is a gene code which causes the immune system to begin producing antibodies and activating T-cells to fight off what it thinks is an infection.
