Many people are hesitant to take covid-19 vaccines because they were developed in less than one year and most vaccines take at least five years to be brought safely to market. Researchers and medical professionals have gone on record stating the science and techniques used to develop covid vaccines has actually been researched for decades
Covid vaccines were developed using mRNA technology. The acronym mRNA stands for messenger ribonucleic acid, which basically carry the genetic makeup of any living organism.
“There are different types of RNA,” according to Dr. Mariel D. Hepburn, who specializes in Family Medicine at the Southwell Medical Clinic in Tifton, Georgia. “RNA is a linear molecule made up of smaller molecules called ribnucleotide bases. They are placed in a specific order leading to genes and the genetic makeup of an organism.”
Dr. Katalin Kariko saw promise in using mRNAs to treat diseases and has been studying it in the U.S. since 1985, according to an article published by University of Alabama Immunology Professor Dr. Moon Nahm in May. Kariko also previously studied mRNAs in her native Hungary before emigrating to America.
In 1998, Kariko partnered with Dr. Drew Click here to read entire article
