COVID vaccine - strictly informative

For those of you who don't know I love science, especially biology. I've been following the COVID 19 crisis over the globe. There isn't a corner it hasn't affected. According to Florida's COVID -19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard 11/26/2020 more than 60 million people worldwide have tested positive for the disease and over 140 million people have died.

Those are glum odds but we've all been assured vaccines are on the way. Which vaccine you get or have the opportunity to receive will depend on where you live. It may also depend on your job and/or health and/or age. BioSpace has a great article comparing the current vaccines. I urge you to read it.

After reading it you see there won't initially be enough of these vaccines to vaccinate a world population of over 78 billion people. What that means is by the time vaccines are widely available is that there will probably be even more available.

MedCram has awesome videos explaining the various vaccines and how they work. Understanding the science is as important to me as understanding how affective they are and even which one I'd rather have shot in my arm.

Pfizer BioNTech

Moderna vs. Pfizer

AstraZeneca Oxford

I hope you took the time to inform yourself and spread the word. In the mean time don't forget to continue using other precautions. Keep yourself and others safe and healthy!
