Of letters and soldiers. The new mRNA vaccine

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.
