Messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA):
Nucleoside-modified mRNA encoding the viral spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2
Gives directions the physique makes use of to construct a innocent piece of a protein from the virus that causes COVID-19. This protein causes an immune response that helps defend the physique from getting sick with COVID-19 sooner or later.
