How does COVID-19 Vaccine work?

 

 

Vaccines train a person’s immune system to recognise and clear out germs (bacteria and viruses) that can cause serious illness. They strengthen your immune system by training it to recognise and fight against specific germs.

Vaccines contain either killed or weakened versions of the virus that causes the disease or a small part of it, such as a protein or nucleic acid. When you get a vaccine, your immune system recognises these as foreign. It responds by creating memory cells and antibodies that protect you against future infection.

The active ingredient of the Pfizer Comirnaty vaccine is a single-stranded, 5’-capped messenger non-replicating mRNA molecule (BNT162b2).
