Vaccines are an invention that are changing the course of history. Diseases that were once deadly like measles and smallpox are now almost nonexistent in modern society. But as our technology changed so did the world around us. The pandemic has been an event that changed the world. It is the first time in modern history that the world has dealt with something on this scale. The novelty of the issue demanded a new answer. mRNA vaccines by Moderna and Pfizer and protein centered vaccines by Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca provide that opportunity. However, with new answers comes new questions. The main ones being how are they different and are they safe? To answer these questions, you must find out how they work, why they are effective, how they can be produced in such a short period of time, and what the future of vaccines will look like.
