Important Points to Remember about mRNA Vaccines
Like all vaccines, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines have been rigorously tested for safety before being authorized for use in the United States.
- mRNA technology is new, but not unknown. It has been studied for more than a decade.
mRNA never enters the nucleus of the cell, which is where our DNA (genetic material) is kept.
- Do not change or interact with the recipient's DNA in any way.
- Do not use the live virus that causes COVID-19 disease.
- Cannot give the recipient COVID-19 disease
