The key takeaway from my research is this – Covid-19 vaccine is safe.
That’s why my staff and I have taken the Covid-19 vaccine.
How does covid vaccine work?
The Covid-19 vaccines by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna deliver a small snippet of messenger RNA into the body. Messenger RNA, or mRNA, is a genetic coding material the body uses as instructions to make specific proteins. Once a protein is made, it is displayed on the surface of the cell. The body then recognizes the foreign protein and develops an immune response to fend off future infection.
And No, Covid-19 vaccine does not cause cancer or autism
- Covid-19 vaccines don’t contain other components that cause cancer.
- mRNA-based vaccines can’t make changes to the human genome and therefore are extremely unlikely to induce new genetic mutations in the cells of the kind that lead to cancer.
- "Vaccine scares" have existed ever since the first smallpox vaccine was developed. Religious beliefs and distrust in medicine dissuaded some from inoculations; others believed they violated their personal liberty. The autism variant of these historical conspiracy theories started in 1998 with a report in a prestigious medical journal suggesting that 12 children developed autism shortly after they received the measles, mumps and rubella, or MMR, vaccine. But the findings were plagued with problems: The research of the lead scientist was funded by a lawyer suing a vaccine manufacturer, while the researcher himself held a patent for a new MMR vaccine. He altered the children’s medical histories to boot. Since then, scores of medical research findings have invalidated the report, and the researcher’s license was revoked.
