STEM / STEAM: How the Pfizer COVID 19 Vaccine Works (mRNA)

Science is real and the latest result of some really cool science, and lots of really smart STEM / STEAM people, is a 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 you and me 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, in the old days, took years 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).
