For more news on COVID-19 in Alaska: Alaska coronavirus Q&A: Your vaccine questions, answered
“With some Alaskans now eligible to receive the first COVID-19 vaccine, we’re continuing to answer readers’ virus and vaccine-related questions. Have a question of your own? Ask it in the form at the bottom of this article.
How do the new vaccines work?
The two leading COVID-19 vaccines — by drug companies Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, which have now both been endorsed by the US Food and Drug Administration — are new but not entirely unknown messenger RNA (mRNA)-based vaccines.
Vaccines work by teaching the body what a virus looks like so that it can effectively attack the virus if it ever enters the body without making us sick. In many traditional vaccines, this is done by putting a weakened or inactivated pathogen into the body.
But the mRNA vaccine instead uses strings of genetic code for the protein found on the surface of the coronavirus to teach human cells to make the protein. The body’s immune system recognizes that the protein doesn’t belong there, and makes antibodies capable of fending off the novel coronavirus. Our cells destroy the mRNA once it has been used.”
