This might be the simplest explanation of how mRNA vaccines work and why the Covid vaccine wasn't rushed.

The long road to mRNA vaccines.

Today’s success with mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 comes from the decades of research that came before it.

Nice.

I have to say, I was initially cautious about the RNA vaccines - I believe the Covid RNA vaccines are the first RNA vaccines used in humans, at least on this scale, and I was concerned about unforeseen problems that could manifest themselves when millions/billions of people were vaccinated.

But when the time came, I followed the best science and rolled up my sleeve. And I’m happy to say my concerns appear to have been groundless.

Safe and effective mRNA vaccines, tested in the heat of battle, if you will, are not only lifesaving in Covid - as the linked timeline shows, the next time a “new” virus comes along, we will likely again be able to sequence it, analyze it, and make a new RNA vaccine in a few months.

Honestly, a revolution in vaccine technology. Not one that came overnight, but one we will probably look back on as a turning point.

When AREN’T vaccines tested this way?

Well, they are tested. But typically over many years, so there is plenty of time to look for any adverse effects.

And so far, the mRNA vaccines appear to be as safe or safer than any. I wouldn’t be surprised to see most vaccines move toward this approach in the future. These days, we can sequence the entirety of a viruses genes in days to a few weeks at most. Identify surface proteins by determining the proteins the genes code for, perhaps days. Synthesize an mRNA strand for a target viral protein, days (or hours). Drop this into a liposome like they did with Covid, and you’re ready to start testing.

Made in machines, not grown up in chicken eggs (for instance), or spliced into some inactivated other virus, both of which have their own potential problems.

Amazing, really.

One’s already being tested for CMV.

Cancer treatments, too.

I don't know about all that. I'll have to double check with my sources on the Facebook.

No need: They are all made from 100% aborted fetuses from Ralph Northam's mandatory abortion law in VA.

Also, 100% of vaccinated people have grown tails.

I just knew those coccyxes would come in handy, or taily, or whatever.

Explains the level of butthurt evidenced in the Trumplican headspace. Growing caudal vertebrae probably hurts.

Don't forget a consult with the medical researchers at Reddit University Hospital and Coffee Bar.

Well. My neighbor said his cousin's brother's wife's step daughter-in-law's hair changed color after she got the vaccine.
