How does the new mRNA vaccine work? And how is it different to the classical vaccines?
In this video we want to answer these questions. The fight against COVID-19 has seen vaccine development move at record speed, with more than 150 different vaccines in trials. To understand the different types of vaccination better, we have to take a look on the underlying biological processes of the production of proteins from DNA and the role of mRNA herein. A common quality of the vaccines is to teach your body to recognize and respond to invading pathogens to prevent you from getting sick. A fairytale in the beginning will explain everything in a simple, figurative way to help you understand the subsequent scientific explanation of the vaccination.
