Pfizer BNT162b2 : mRNA Vaccine Designed By BioNTech

The Pfizer BNT162b2 vaccine, also known as Tozinameran, is an mRNA vaccine designed by BioNTech.

Like the Modern vaccine, it uses messenger RNA (mRNA) technology to teach our cells to manufacture the SARS-CoV-2 protein spike.

Those SARS-CoV-2 protein spikes will trigger the immune response that teaches our body how to fight the real disease.

Singapore First Asian Country To Receive Pfizer Vaccine!

Singapore today became the first country in Asia to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

The vaccines were transported onboard SQ7979 – a Boeing 747-400 freighter, that departed Brussels on 20 December 2020, and arrived in Singapore at 7:55 PM on 21 December 2020.

The vaccines were immediately transferred to the SATS cold chain facility, Coolport, for subsequent storage and ground transportation.

During the flight, the internal temperature of each thermal shipper box was actively tracked on an end-to-end basis. They also measured the sublimation rate of the dry ice in the boxes.
