Nanoparticle Based Vaccines

Going forward, nanoparticle-based vaccines which deliver SARS-CoV-2 antigens will play an increasing role in extending or improving vaccination outcomes against COVID-19. At present, over 26 nanoparticle vaccine candidates have advanced into clinical testing, with ?60 more in pre-clinical development.Nov 18, 2021

Why are Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine side effects worse after the second shot?

Side effects from both the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines are more common after the second dose. This is because your immune system recognizes the virus spike protein from the first dose of the vaccine and mounts a stronger response.

What does the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine contain?

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine contains messenger RNA (mRNA) which is genetic material. The vaccine contains a synthetic piece of mRNA that instructs cells in the body to make the distinctive “spike” protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
