Vaccines are one of the best ways to prevent sickness and death from infectious diseases. Vaccines work by spurring the immune system into action using a small dose of the same germs that cause disease. When the immune system is prepared for these germs, they can attack them before spreading through the body.
We have vaccines for many diseases, including pneumonia, the flu, and a vaccine to help fight against the COVID-19 virus. Scientists have developed the COVID-19 vaccine as your best protection against getting sick from the coronavirus.

The purpose of a vaccine is to teach the body to recognize and react to an invader. The goal is not necessarily to prevent infection (which is impossible for most viruses) but to create an immune response that produces antibodies capable of fighting off infection if it occurs. This is why people who have had polio, chickenpox or measles are unlikely to get it again, even if they come into contact with the virus again.
The virus that causes COVID-19 is coated in spike proteins that easily infect human cells and replicate. The COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body to produce spike proteins that teach your immune system to recognize and fight off the spikes on the coronavirus. Once your immune system recognizes the coronavirus, it naturally gets rid of all parts of the vaccine.
COVID-19 is a very contagious virus with severe consequences. People who may have COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms can spread the virus to others even before confirming that they have contracted COVID-19 themselves. The global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus has caused many deaths and many more hospitalizations.
Hospital resources have been challenged due to increased hospitalizations due to COVID-19 infections. Life-saving surgeries have been cancelled and treatments postponed. People should get immunized against COVID-19 to protect themselves, avoid infecting others, and save our healthcare system from collapse.
Some believe that by receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, they will contract COVID-19. Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine does not give you COVID, nor does it alter the DNA of your cell. The three vaccines approved for use in the United States are the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine uses viral vector technology to protect against COVID-19. That means that these immunizations use a disabled portion of the COVID-19 virus, which then triggers the body’s immune response.
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccine is the most commonly used right now. They use mRNA technology to teach our bodies how to fight the COVID-19 virus. The mRNA vaccine is essentially a recipe, telling the body’s cells how to make the spike protein found on the surface of the coronavirus. After the spike protein is made, the cell breaks down, and the body gets rid of the instructions. The mRNA never enters the cell’s central part (nucleus), where our DNA (genetic material) is found.
