Moderna Spikevax Vaccine : A Quick Primer!

The Moderna Spikevax vaccine (formerly known as mRNA-1273) is an mRNA vaccine like the Pfizer-BioNTech COMIRNATY vaccine.

The Spikevax vaccine uses mRNA (messenger RNA) instructions to teach your cells to create the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Once presented on the surface of those cells, the spike protein triggers the immune system to create antibodies that will protect you against the real SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The Moderna Spikevax is a 2-dose vaccine with 94.1% efficacy against symptomatic COVID-19.
